Somewhere around three years ago I picked up a half dozen Action City toy garbage trucks. Perfect for 28mm with the flat face design.

I have spent the last two years going through one medicl problem after another. Eery time I became healthy, something else would go off. Ending off in finally with edema, weakening vision.

I am just using 'cheater' magnifiers at 1.5x while I wait for my eyes to stabilize after a year plus of injections.

I finally came across some perfect truck cargo bodies. Sarissa Productions does the cardboard mdf and their low aggregate train body is a perfect cargo truck body.

I spent the day priming, painting and dull coating. Assemble the bodies and have now finished the wheel hubs with their priming, painting and clear coating. At thirty-six wheels, that's a big job.

Let the celebrations begin!
I finally finished a small project after three yaers!!!

Dark Eldar, that's a funny title?

Anyone interested in the civil war has likely heard of famous brigades like the Iron, Stonewall, Orphan, Irish Brigade, etc. I find it interesting that in my research I have found that most of the famous brigades both infantry and cavalry were formed and earned their reputation early in the war.
I am having a challenge finding any brigades that "became" famous after 1863 on either side. I was hoping that some of the much better informed here might know of a few on both sides that should be considered among the elite but didn't fight until the later battles of the war, after Gettysburg for example? Any have some come to mind? Thanks!

Off the top of my head, I'd pick:

Wilder's "Lightning" Brigade of the Army of the Cumberland

Cockrell's 1st Missouri Brigade of Pemberton's Army of Mississippi during the Vicksburg campaign

The Kentucky "Orphan" Brigade of the Army of Tennessee

Granbury's Texas Brigade of the Army of Tennessee

I'm sure there would be others.
