A group of us are looking forward to Sam Mustafa’s Longstreet rules for the American Civil War and are starting to paint up some forces for it. I also want to be able use the figures for other rules sets such as the grand daddy, and measuring stick for rules of this period – Fire and Fury. We decided to use 10mm figs on inch square bases. I so have have bought Pendraken ones from the UK. So far I have been impressed with the figures.
However, before starting a major army I like to do a figure/base all the way through to completion to ensure I have the colours right and the technique (especially basing) to the point that I like the end result. As it seems that we have a larger number of players interested in the Union forces I volunteered to do a Confederate force, although I will do a Union force in the end. I have spent a lot of time in Atlanta over the years so what the heck.
