28mm ACW 2ND MISSISSIPPI Foundry minis

I finished my 2nd Mississippi Foundry minis a while back. They came out great but these pics are pretty bad. I'll get some better shots soon. I painted them mostly in blue battle shirts trimmed in red with a few red fireman's shirts here and there. Each man has a white Mississippi star most on the hat but a few on collars and sleeves. These were a lot of fun to do and makes for a really cool early war unit.

28mm Redoubts

Happy New Year! I wanted to get some pics up of the redoubt pieces I have been working on. I got them from Acheson Creations at Fall-in in G-burg this past November.

They look very good with some simple modification. I found the texture to was a bit lacking in detail so I added sand, a quick dry brush and some static grass and the look is fantastic. Overall the product is great and the price is even better.

I made 2 angle pieces out of the 50 cent log wall sections he sells. These are very useful for making custom sections.

One sepia shot to hide the flash wash out :)

One thing that was missing from the product line were end caps, a good way to to end the line you set up. I made my own using spent gift cards for the base and match-up edge, green stuff, and a row of the 50 cent gabions. This worked very well.
