American Civil War: Union (17)



Another unit of Zouaves mustered for the Union forces this week with some Zouave companies from the 76th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment.

Line the 74th New York that I did last week these figures are all from the Perry Miniatures American Civil War Zouaves set.


I did my usual method of, prime, base-coat, AP strong tone, highlights on these and am happy with how they came out. The standards are from Warflag.

A top tip, the Perry Zouave box only contains one command frame, if you want to get two units out of it like I did then also buy one of these.


Checking the tracker, this brings me up to 530 28mm foot figures painted this year, I think that may be a new record, and it's only November!

We have visitors staying for the next couple of weeks, so painting may be somewhat curtailed for a while.

  1. Hi mate,
    more great work.
    On a different note, what harm does Tongo/Armand chappy actually?
    I've never considered this cross posting as an issue before so just thought to ask you. He posts my stuff but I don't recall him claiming it as his own. Be keen to hear your experiences on this.
    Be good,
    JJ

    1. Cheers Jeremy,

      My thought is that he never credits the original author of the work and typically responds to positive posts with at thank you, I read that as that he is passing the work off as his own.

      Also, I think TMP is not for me. If I wanted to post my stuff on there I would post it on there.

      I actively don't post on there so it's irksome when somebody does post my stuff on there and without approbation.

  4. Lovely unit. Crisp brush work on the red lace, great highlighting on the bloused trousers. Well done!

  5. Lovely work as always! Will these be for a different ruleset than SP2? I see they're all on the same sized bases. Are they all on 20mm or 25mm bases?

    1. Thank you.

      They are all on 20mm bases.

      I shall still be playing SP2, but am also looking at some bigger battles using Longstreet.
