Union Firing(15mm)

Posting up some more of my re-worked 15mm Old Glory ACW collection. It's moving along at a pretty decent pace and I have more waiting to be posted up. It's mostly union at the moment that's finished and being posted, but I am working on some confederates, but they of course take much longer to do with the constant colour changes. Anyhow, I'm having some fun since I don't have to start from scratch making things move along pretty quick compared to my normal tortoise speed. Stay tuned more on the way!

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  1. They are wonderful units Christopher! They will look fantastic when massed on a wargaming table.

  6. Great post and painted figures Christopher, you are motoring along with these! I have been looking at OGs Renaissance 15s which look really good and your work on these OG unionists are certainly giving me the nudge in this manufactures direction!

    1. Thank you very much Chris. I've had my eye on the OG Renaissance range as well, but have yet to try them out.

  7. Good looking troops, and nice works.
    15 mm sets are very small

  9. Having seen them on friday in the flesh.. or lead, or whatever... I can only state they're even better in real life. Especially the flags really help bringing them to life.

    2. Thank you very much Nick! No doubt GMB flags are simply superb and really help a unit shine.

    3. Thank you for the hind support Jonathan, however Nick is a very accomplished painter in his own right so I'm equally pleased when he brings his lovely figures over for a game. We do enjoy showing each other and examining the others latest completed figures. I'm quite fortunate in that many of the folks I game with are no slouches with a brush.:-)

  11. For being your early figures they look absolutely fabulous Christopher. How many units do you need to re-base?

    1. Thank you very much Curt, but I did paint them cleanly at first so it did make touching them up easier and remember these are done with new added techniques I've learned so should not be viewed as beginner figures. Anyhow they look better at arms length then at eye level. I'm not sure how many I need to re-base yet, but it's still quite a few.

  12. Very fine work, Christopher. You've got the Union uniform colours spot on, I think.
    I use GMB flags for my own ACW figures as well, you can't go wrong with them.
    Cheers,
    Michael

    1. Thank you very much Jonas! For periods like this I don't like a lot of space between the figures and it's also the recommendations given in RF&F.

  14. Great looking troops and flags, well done sir!

  15. These look just right Christopher. The colour of the uniforms and base composition gives the right impression of how I would want my ACW units to look.

  16. These look just right to me as well. Good job converting these, alway fun to pimp up some old stuff...We are debating on redoing acw again in a smaller scale so this is great inspiration. We go 15 or 10, don't know yet :)

    1. Thank you very much Mike. That's a hard one to call as 10mm gives a great mass battle look and is quicker to paint, but 15mm still allows you to see the detail and also gives a decent large battle effect. For me the decision was decided as I already had a lot of 15mm, but if I was starting from scratch then I'm not sure which I would have done.
