Great looking troops and table. A fine collection. 😀

Looks just great!! What I find interesting is how all these various manufacturers figures look so great together after all the endless droning on we hear about this subject.
If you need an extra bag of figures, drop me a line and they will be on the house -- for showing such a great display.

Thank you for the kind words. I try to make the armies as realistic as possible with many different uniforms and colors/styles in a unit(take a close look at the Continental units) with as many figure poses and manufacturers as possible. I used Essex, Old Glory, Peter Pig, Blue Moon, Mirlton and Washington's Wars to make up the Units. Like the Civil War armies the uniforms vary in color and style with the Rifle shirt being popular in the Rebel army and militia units on both sides. Alot of wargamers forget that not all soldiers are of the same size and stature which I think can be reflected by mixing figures to get a realistic look to a unit rather than a parade ground representation best left to units that were supplied by their mother country(My Hessians ,French and British formations which do have some variance also. I will have to finish them when I get time(I currently work 6 days a week up to 12 hours a day) once I do i'll post the rest and get working on my War OF 1812 all 36 Battalions….Did someone mention Free figures……………..

Awesome pics and great variety in the units/poses. Truly inspiring.

I like your philosophy regarding mixing manufacturers. There are very few ranges that I don't find completely compatible. If it bothers me that much, they go on different ends of the table. It hardly ever does.

oberdu – I have a few odd figures left over from my armies – happy to share with you if it would help

Beautifully done.

Oberdu, call Old Glory 724-423-3580 and speak to Connie.
Mention TMP and this conversation. She will be aware and that entitles you to a pack of figures and postage -- your choice.
