69th New York, the Fighting 69th

It's the Union turn to get some attention, so a quick order to North Star and I've added a union of New York Irish to the collection.

All the figures are from the Fighting 69th. set from Crusader Miniatures and are lovely casts, although a bit thinner than the Perry Miniatures so look a bit more sparse on their bases, maybe I should have mounted these in fours rather than threes. 

Several of the figures are supplied bare-footed and they give a bit of flavour.

The standards are from Flags of War and are included in the set, having looked at the photos, the green seems a little fogged by the varnish, so I'll likely give that another coat of brush-on to sort it out.

Some close ups.

Hope to get these chaps out on the table soon.

  7. Beautiful looking Union troops, Scrivs. Interesting how you are doing ACW and me (being an American) doing ECW :)

    1. Thanks Dean, I swore that after painting and selling about five ACW armies I'd never do another....
