I've been talking re-flagging and re-basing my older units. Actually, bringing them up to speed, is more like it. My terrain techniques have improved slightly since the 80's or '90's and a little work goes a long way. These can look much better.

To be blunt, my flags sucked. Way too large and overblown.
They all needed changing.

First off, I ordered all the flags that I could for Mr Ramos and FOW. I already have GMB's entire line. I set off using tips from our veteran flag makers here and soon had 50, or so, flags all ready to be assigned.
The choice of the 3 RD NY was just random. John Bryant had sent me a Fife and Drum unit painted in Gray/Green and a note saying 3 rd NY. I checked back and found that I already had a 3 RD NY, painted by the very same JB, 10 or so, years earlier!
The other unit was a jumble of Perry/Foundry/ Eureka figures and I decided to re-name them the 6 th MD. Which works out just fine, as I plan to move them into my Maryland Brigade, with Foreman's Reds and Gist's Lights.

So, the FIRST totally completed, nothing more to be done, Unit is the 3 RD NY.
I should be able to finish several more quickly, as a couple of regiments are all finished. except for flags

Not delighted with these pix, but they will do for now.

I'm rolling!!

Back in the 1970s that was the first regiment I did.
