|I was able to find a free image of the exact flag used in the movie and carried by the Cadets at New Market.|
I did a six stand unit as that is the smallest you can have in long street though at 60 to 80 men per stand this makes the unit a little over large historically. We'll assume the other are veterans attached to stiffen the boys and look after them.
There are 24 18mm figures so I believe they should be worth 48 points though maybe Curt will give a few extra points for their slightly lagers size.
Wonderful figures Adam! I like that you took the time to cherry pick the castings to better convey the youth of the Regiment. I have the VMI in 28mm from Redoubt and, like you, really enjoyed doing the research behind the figures. Thanks for the heads up on 'Field of Lost Shoes' - it sounds like a very interesting film. I like that you bring up it grappling with 'That Peculiar Institution' as it's often conveniently glossed over, if not completely distorted, by many apologists. I look forward to tracking it down and watching it.
