These Damn Yankees look wonderful Clint. I really like how vibrant your colours are for both their uniforms and basing - they'll stand out very nicely on the tabletop. I'm about to use 'A Song of Drums and Shakos' for my 1812 Retreat collection so we'll have to exchange notes on our experiences. I have high hopes as the rules look quite interesting.

From ClintB - 28mm ACW Union Infantry (60 Points)
Here we have 12 American Civil War Perry plastic miniatures in 28mm. These are the first Perry Plastics I have tried and I must say they went together well despite me having more thumbs than fingers. I have no delusions about creating a huge mass of these as I want to try out the rules "Songs of Drums and Shakos" (and before you say anything I do realize they are Napoleonic skirmish rules).
Each mounted single as befits a skirmish set of rules on 25mm MDF Bases. They are not intended to be any particular regiment but generic troops as I want to keep any games flexible. As all the troops come in a variety of poses and wear a variety of uniforms I have attempted to give them a campaign look with different hats and patches on some of the clothes. When I do some "Rebs" I will take that further.
But for now 12 single based Union Infantry with no flags, drums or any other paraphernalia. Just standard generic troops. Nothing more.
