From: MartinC - Scorpion Drive (255 points)
Finished my ACW forces, obviously a lie, with a union command stand, a Confederate officer and a Confederate regiment
Mix of Perry and some random metals (Dixon I think)
Union Command stand - Dixon and left over from last week
Confederate Officer - no clue, picked up in flea market
Inspired by StephenS' Carthaginian post last week I dug out my Victrix figs and painted a regiment. Had these for ages, bought them on pre-order I think. Came with some transfers. Liked the design but really really really really really hate transfers so I hand painted the scorpion design on the shield. Really like painting shields - my only opportunity for free hand design.
The Scorpion Regiment
Shield close up. In my youth communities used to have fund raising events called beetle drives where you would draw a beetle based on a dice roll - 6 for a body, 5 for head, 4 for each leg etc. This is my Scorpion Drive.
48 x 28mm infantry = 240pts
1x 28mmm cav = 10 pts
plus any hand painted shield bonus type thing
Gosh Martin, what a whopper post this! There's so much to love here, those ACW figures look like they're straight out of a real time re-enactment, gorgeous! I must admit that the Victrix Carthaginians are my favourites though, the shield designs are superb and your choice of colour scheme inspired as well as inspiring. Great work all round. Seeing the large amount of freehand shields I think 5 bonuspoints are in order.
