These 3mm (1:600 scale) ACW figures (yes, they are very, very wee) are from Pico Armor. I picked these up a few years ago in a fit of madness knowing I could finally indulge my fascination with 1:1 scale and formations. I started working on a few bases but got distracted by other projects (I know, how typical). Nonetheless, I found them tucked away in a drawer the other week, so pulled them out, the spark took light once again and so here we are.
Each regiment is made up of 10 bases, with each base being a complete infantry company at 1:1 scale.
|Both regiments drawn up in line.|
|Column of divisions, two companies wide at full intervals.|
|Close column, two companies wide. Highly inefficient for combat but much easier to control.|
|My first base. I has the Regimental Colours as part of a company (which is incorrect).|

|Magnetized rear 'L' tab.|
