|1st Division, first Brigade, all Virginians|
|Unit name was on each base|
Each regiment has five bases with a number of figures on each representing the total strength of the regiment.
|Third Regiment in the the first Brigade||\|
Two figures to a base, strength of the regiment 200, three figures 300 etc.
Some flags are paper whilst others are metal with the figures, like the one on the left - I can't believe I painted that !
|Fourth Regiment, four figures|
|The whole Brigade|
|The brigade's storage area, colour coded !|
|The commanders, L to R - Divisional CO, C-in-C Corps and sample Brigade CO|
I used figures as markers to record casualties, when sufficient had been accumulated , a base of figures was removed, but in the meantime the "casualties" followed the regiment (known as baggage in our games),
|I have a lot of casualty markers !|
|3" Riles on the left and 12pdr Napoleons on the right.|
|The Corps needs a lot of Artillery ,,,|
|...and of course gunners (Random Selection )|
The gentleman on the left is plastic whom I suspect is the Airfix "Wagon Train", 'boy' figure.
Digging deeper amongst the gunners I found even more civilians, including at least one other Wagon Train figure whom I distinctly remember cutting down her dress by a couple of millimetres to fit in with the smaller 15mm figures. (She is the third figure from the left in the photograph below.
|Woman, man, woman Shepherd with sheep (?!&*?) and man with gun.|
|1st Division- all Virginians|
|2nd Division - Georgians and Texans|
|3rd Divsion - Georgians and Alabanians|
|Unused flags - probably surplus to requirements.|
As always there are surprises in my collections, the civilians above being one, but I also found this packet of flags (on the right) too:
|17 x 13.5 inches of goodness.|
I doubt any new-comer to the period would even bother with "Coggins",but it was the go-to reference book and is still a fountain of knowledge.
|The state I found this drawer in !|
And that's it for this week, the third remaining drawer must contain my Union Force that I'll post about next week as once more I haven't managed a single hobby-related activity over the last week.
Thanks for taking the time to visit, hopefully finding something of interest and of course your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
