Greg’s parcel (Part II)

Visits: 54

Today the minis all are from BACCUS 6MM… ACW detail… and a Crimean War perspective.

Wargamers in this scale must understand the importance of flags: “They make the Unit”.

I embellished a bit the Rebels…

And an apology is due to Greg (done) because the colour and shade of the horses is as I asked for… the day I opened the parcel my eyes were not true to form (and in a hurry!) and I thought they were all the same shade of colour!

Once this said I still prefer the ACW in 6MM to any other period because the size and the real uniforms go well together… Crimean and Napoleonic Units have an excess of detail very hard to “impressionistically” (pointilisme) translate to 6MM (but I can be wrong you know!… have seen marvelous painting (including faces!) of them in 6MM… it is me who do not seem able to achieve the right compromise!… but I stubbornly go on…

More in future Posts.

Enjoy!

Those two Brigades were at Harper’s Ferry and did not arrive at the field of battle in Antietam/Sharpsburg (in fact they were in the DHL parcel)
