Hi, I’ll raise a long shot suggestion of Hungarians or Romanians.
As an out of left field idea, I am considering buying “Victorian Steel” Colonial rules to see if they would work for the ’45. Reading some of the descriptions and AARs of regulars taking on armies of mixed composition, using some interesting mechanisms have piqued my interest.
Great unit. I like the base – I am a firm convert to big bases as they let you tell a story with your miniatures if you want, or really pack them in to really convey mass.
Very nice looking game. I don’t live too far from the South Mountain passes so nice to see the battle on the tabletop. Another Union victory wasted by McClellan! What did you think about the Longstreet rules? I am thinking about buying them. From what I read I did not think they had skirmish/open order formations but it looks like you have a Union unit deployed in open order.
Thanks everyone. I like diorama bases because my figures usually spend more time in the cabinet than on the table! I like seeing the”massed ranks” other can put on a table but I have enough trouble painting the 5 – 7 I put on a big base …
Huber – yes it is a Sassanid figure but made by Eureka miniatures as part of their small Dark age range. The Ostrogoths negotiated with the Sassanids during the Gothic war to open a new front against Justinian so maybe this is a Sassanid “advisor”.
