The Army of Virginia creeps on 😀

For all sorts of reasons I have not been gaming last couple of weeks, the good news is the cold has nearly gone and we are away on holiday for the next week in SW Scotland quiet time as life has been very hectic. As I am still enjoying the 'Rebs' I have pushed on and completed the third regiment.

I am still experimenting a bit with colours, these are obviously a more 'regular' unit slightly better fitted out. I quite like this slightly lighter grey and I have used the light blue to add some sparing highlight colour.

Only four slouch hats in the whole unit. Pretty happy with these 😀

Keen observers will note none of them are wearing football scarves ! I am starting to formulate a slightly more structured direction going forward, working out what figures I have and what else I will need to get. With three units completed I even had to go and get them a box from town !

  2. Cool. Just had a look at what Perry's offer and you've certainly got the selection of plastics to use for this project.

    1. Thanks....as a new project the plastics which I bought in the battle in a box set are a great starting point to bulk some regiments, They have a pretty good range if you include their metal range and of course Wargames Foundry were as far as I know sculpted by the Perry,s as well so broadly match up.

  8. Great looking rebels, no Arsenal supporters in this batch? Pity! Got to love Perry plastics.
