With the help of Frank Patterson, I have made good progress building a new wargames army. This is an ACW Union "force" using mostly Redoubt Miniatures 28mm metals with a few Perry pieces. Unlike most of my collection that sits in cabinets and seldom sees the miniature battlefield, this new army was made with gaming in mind.
I have used durable metal bases per Fire & Maneuver basing conventions. In the past I have always used Litko wooden bases. I did most of the basing and helped paint some of the ordnance and horses. However Frank gets full credit for painting most of the figures and showing me how to paint to a good wargames standard. The flags are by GMB Designs.
We have one more infantry brigade to complete and a few wagons. The Redoubt figures are very nice, loaded with character and fun to paint.
