Regimental and Brigade Commanders : ACW

I have had a few of these figures on the go for a while, so nice to get some finished.
Another Union Commander, in fact I now have three levels of commander in the ACW collection this guy (probably meant to be burnside I think) is on the larger 50 mm base, and with multiple figures he will likely play as a Corps commander in our largest battles.
This Rebel commander also on a 50 mm base would play as a Divisional commander as a single figure. I then have Brigade Commanders on 40 mm round bases (photo colour is poor and they look better in real life honest)
I also had the idea to make some mounted command figures which could fit into the normal Regimental units to add variety and give the option to split my 6 base Regs into two smaller units, again for larger battles. 
These are the two Union versions (Rebels in the queue) they all Perry figures I think
and here they are slotted into a unit.....
Very happy with these as they allow some nice visual variety ๐Ÿ‘

  2. Nicely done Matt. I was staring into the pics and noticed the mix of marching and action troops within the same unit. I have done pure units (all march or all action), but I like your mix much better and the leader added just helps with that overall variety.

    1. Thanks Norm.....I am not sure there was anything really planned about the units I tend to make up the figures and then arrange them as best as I can on the bases for overall effect ๐Ÿ‘

  3. Nice visual variety, indeed! Good to see that you can steal away some time from your busy work schedule for sessions at the workbench.

  5. Excellent. Planning to get mine out again for the Old Guard in April i think. However it will be in Billingham, which may be a bit far. Would be nice to get both full collections out some time though
