Anyone know of a nicely sculpted 15/18mm ACW range that incorporates figures that represent "Western federals" (as opposed to the Easter Army of the Potomac "band box" sort) … I'm looking for the genuine article like you see in these photos of veterans with a variety of different hats, frock coats, and even some knee boots thrown in:

Blue moon has them planned although at the present time they are mis-marked in the catalouge as "western confederates" -- OOOPs!!!

Russ,

Thanks. To be honest, I was wondering what your sculptor had in mind with "western confederates!" Glad to hear you have some planned for release. I've been very pleased with what I've seen so far in this expanding range.

How about doing them for the OG 2nd Edition 28mm range too! (please!)
