Just to express thanks from a visiting Napoleonic modeller to all who helped me get this project underway. I wanted to do some Missouri raiders for one of my lads, who is about to start a three year PhD on some obscure aspect, of what sounds like a thoroughly nasty business. Every schoolboy has heard of Quantrill, but Anderson was new to me.
I got lots of helpful suggestions

as to where I could find 28mm figures and have quite a collection now. So far I've just painted the Dixons range and posed then in front of a surviving Lawrence building (with very modern double glazing I admit). The wooden building is somewhere else in Missouri.
Help here was really appreciated. Cheers!

Very nicely done, both your painting and the assistance from other TMPers.

Bang on! Terrific work.

Much appreciated. It is beginning to dawn on me that I could have added far more ornamentation to the guerilla shirts….more like my work on Mamelukes in Napoleon's Guard, than what The Outlaw Josey Wales wore.

I almost feel some Zouaves coming on.

What great pictures – very nicely done!

Fantastic work, especially the "battle shirts."

Deadhead, those look great – and the faces are very well done….in fact they're well done all-over! The building backgrounds add that extra degree of immersion too.
I've got some Company D minis waiting in the wings (maybe in the future). :)
Thanks also for including your information request link, as the guys here did a nice job on the resourcing.

I do a mean uvulopalatopharyngoplasty and am known for my ary-epiglottopexy, though I say so myself. But at age 64 I think I will increasingly stick to the paint brush………

Bound to ask……

Did FlyXwire ever do those Company D minis? Has anyone else got images of painted guerillas? My spare figures are still looking at me accusingly, as they are being ignored.

This is way out of my comfort zone for research but I was so grateful for the input. Anything more really appreciated!

DH, no, they're all still in their box. :(
I have tho, just started a group project where guys in the area are going to paint up ACW units to play monthly "Run What Cha' Brung" skirmishes – and I've ordered some of the new FG MinZ and some Perry's (all infantry), and that got me thinking about these Company D minis again, and how/if I could get them into the mix somehow.
