Fire! and Follower 200

This time we go back to the American Civil War. It all started with a base I bought at the FIGZ meeting in 2012. I did that only because I had an idea how to make a little vignette with it. A last stand of some Confederate soldiers.



In the first picture you can see the result of it. But let's do this step by step. The terrain is from Wolf Terrain a Danish firm who made this for 15 mm figures. When I told them I would use for my 1/72 scale figures they wouldn't believe me. But here's the prove I ment it. It's a real nice base and it was fun to paint it.




I didn't use only figures sold as Confederate soldiers but also Union soldiers. An overview of the figures used in this vignette.

Revell 02559 Union Infantry


Esci 223 Confederate Infantry


Revell 02558 Confederate Infantry

And here are some pictures of the vignette.
