All gamers and builders know this feeling, when you see something and can't stop thinking, wouldn't it be great in 28mm (or whatever your scale)?

I am no different and usually have a lot of ideas just sitting around (I mean my wife has a whole board on this pinterest of hers where she pins stuff she wants to make in miniature). Some projects sit there forever and some just keep nagging us.

This is the one I have been wanting for a very long time.
When I first saw Bartek Drejewicz's Pin-up girls way back in 2014, I was hooked and couldn't stop thinking how fantastic they would be in 28mm.

But there was no way: it needed Bartek's approval, a talented sculptor and money to invest (which I didn't have as all had just gone into Things from the Basement, LLC).

Fast forward, in spring 2017 I finally convinced Bartek and he allowed me to use his American Civil War drawings for the project. I found Steve Barber to sculpt the girls (not an easy task as I want accurate historical uniforms and my wife wants cute girls with booties) and I finally had the time and money to invest.

So here they are "Southern Belles and Northern Beauties" metal cast in 28 mm, ready to fight epic battles and small skirmishes….

Like a character from the "I Dream of Zouave" TV show.
