Skirmish at Roswell, Ga: Caught by a Confederate patrol while bathing in the Chattahoochie River, the men of the US 1st Tenn Cav mount a charge while buck naked,

So, how long before someone posts the question: Does anyone make figures for this?

Being charged by a large number naked armed men on or off horse back could be a bit unnerving … I'd think … *huh*?

You might mean July 9th. :)

Should there be buck naked Confederate cavalry?
And should there also be separate figures for Union Eastern and Western theatres?

Seriously though…
Until someone comes up with a dedicated line, back in the 80s, QT miniatures had a huge "true 25mm" range of Ancient figures with separate heads and arms. I'm sure they had naked cavalry. I had naked slingers for my Greek army, long gone.
I believe there was something in the news a few weeks ago about someone bringing back QT ranges.

So, those of you with leftover kepi heads from your plastic kits…
Ok! Ok! "Forage caps!"

Obviously one off unit for a unique scenario. I wouldn't want to depend on these troops in every game. Unless you really wanted to.

At a reenactment I found myself in command of a batch of naked men!

Too much information, Scott.

Thank you Scott for that vivid image. As a long-time reenactor myself I can only tremble thinking of the horrors that you were forced to see.
