Need some good references of typical lady civilian with big dress appropriate for the 1860's. I could google but try my luck here for more expertise input.

Reaper makes some Victorian ladies and personalities that might work.

Peter Pig has them in the ACW and western ranges. Pack 28 to see detail. Also very good pictures in Don Troiani ACW book. With CSA officer showing ladies his telescope (no euphemism) ! Photos of pack are there too.

Blue Moon Miniatures has lots of citizens, including women, in their Old West range. The figures work well for ACW.

Redoubt has a set of 5 ACW civilians. Two are female.

Old Glory make a very nice set of civilians for the ACW/WBTS


Col Campbell, thanks for that link. I needed such info to paint the above figures.

Are the old glory 25mm compatible with 1/72 figures?

Confederate Swede,

Old Glory 25mm are NOT compatible with 1/72. In fact, many of the Old Glory 25mm are really 28mm in size. It depends upon the individual set of figures. Some are true 25mm to the eyes and others are 28mm (this is true even within an historical range/period!).

Heck, as you can see on Plastic Soldier Review size comparisons show, often 1/72 is not compatible with 1/72 …
