    another mostly recovered base.

    the troopers are again 1970s airfix infantry cleaned up, rebased and repainted. They are led by a new plastic strelets officer.

    Excellent figures, you are making it very hard for me not to move into 20mm plastic ACW.

    if I paint any more bases of these they are only going to get white and blue trouser stripes.

    A couple of metal standard bearers from jacklex. The left one is carrying Lees early HQ flag and is for a command stand.

    the right hand one is carrying the Alabama flag and will be going into a unit.

    @willz
     thanks very much,

    these are the 1st Massachusetts volunteers in their all light blue uniform. I’m a fan of units in unusual kit in any conflict but especially the ACW.

    I thought you’d like to see what you caused! 🙂

    imex cavalry. They’ve had minor surgery so that the two outer ones are shooting much more to the front rather than their colleagues either side, which is how they come in the box.

    a jacklex metal JEB Stuart command stand.

    I decided JEB on his own wasn’t ‘command-y’ Enough, so he’s now conferring with an Infantry officer
    while a standard bearer looks on.

    foot figures are metal new line designs.

    All strelets, 1st South Carolina volunteer infantry.

    they were the first black unit raised in the north, all the men were escaped slaves from Florida or South Carolina.

    another rescued and repainted airfix model, union cannon and artillery crew. These survived quite well except for the ends of the long pieces.

    @jeffers the nostalgia rush was strong.


    strelets confederates standing with 2 metal standard Bearers from 1st corp. more Texans.

    a reclaimed airfix limber.

    this was probably the worst one so far. The plastic was like chalk.

    While very gently trimming flash with a brand new scalpel blade one horse lost his tail and a leg, 2 other horses lost legs and one of the outriders split into 3 pieces!

    i wouldn’t have bothered trying to repair and rebuild the damage if it wasn’t for the nostalgia attached to these figures.

    im pretty certain it isn’t going to survive first contact with the enemy unscathed.

    Love the limbers fair oaks as I love the look of all you figures.  I coat all my plastic figures with PVA glue and especially the weaker ones I mix watered down PVA wood glue with watered down green stuff to strengthen the figures.
