Nice figs for use inside an old west town building as well, even if you don't play ACW.

Nice to see this line continuing!

Nice vignette based on a famous old photograph. I like it.
|Bashytubits||10 Jul 2012 12:04 p.m. PST|
Good stuff as usual, keep it coming!

Wow those look like right out of the ACW images of Bethel Church and Grant's counsel of war.
| Patrick R ||10 Jul 2012 12:20 p.m. PST|
That is a fantastic set !!!

I'm going to buy both just to paint up and display. Good job Old Glory!
|Dan Beattie ||10 Jul 2012 12:47 p.m. PST|
The sculpt is from a famous photo of a meeting of Grant's staff at Massaponax Church on May 21,1864.
The church is still standing , about 15 miles south of the Convention Center on Route 1 (but the pews have been taken back indoors).

Now those are really nice

Really nice, I don't do ACW yet this makes it harder. Anyone know how Old Glory compare in size to perry ACW.

Gosh, it's nice to see this line moving forward. Just love the figures.
|Ken Portner ||10 Jul 2012 3:57 p.m. PST|
Very nice. But would it. Be ungrateful of me to say that I'd prefer evn more. Variety in plain old infantry (for example Union infantry in Western theater looking uniforms ) as opposed to these sort of "extras"?
I wonder how many feel the same?
| BAMeyer ||10 Jul 2012 4:28 p.m. PST|
Way too nice to pass up even if I don't need them
|Early morning writer ||10 Jul 2012 9:11 p.m. PST|
There for a minute I got excited, thinking they were 15 mm. Oh, well, maybe it bodes well for something new for the smaller gents.

These are awesome little vignettes. Nicely done OG. I see Chris Hughes' sculpting style in these figures.
|avidgamer||11 Jul 2012 5:51 a.m. PST|
I'm with ya. Sure, I love them and will buy them. They are well sculpted and a nice change of pace. It's a homerun. The thing is
I want holes filled in with the every day items for a CW army. If new items are coming out in a month or so then I wouldn't bother to type this but
are they coming? I'd love artillery, Chasseurs and plain Frock coated Union infantry. Please? Tell us they are coming out soon?
I'm not saying I don't like them or that kinda thing. They are great works
I just want holes filled in. :(
|ACWBill||11 Jul 2012 6:32 a.m. PST|
Hey Avid, have you looked at Steve Barber models? They have alot of interesting figures and heads come separately. It may be the thing you are after.
|Disco Joe||11 Jul 2012 6:59 a.m. PST|
Avid, don't expect the holes to get filled in. I mentioned to Russ years ago when they had the first range of ACW what I thought they should come out with and they never did. So anymore I don't have any expectations
.just happy when something new comes out that appeals to me.
|avidgamer||11 Jul 2012 8:25 a.m. PST|
Yes, I have some of the Steve Barber models. I bought some of the Frock coat models for my Union regiments but I don't like them. The holes for the heads are waaay too large for the heads themselves. The heads do have pins attached but these are very thin. The fit is awful and they wobble around and/or break off. You just can't glue them in. I had to do a lot of puttying to make them work. I'm not buying them anymore.
Their size is also larger than the Sash & Saber, Perry's, OG 2nd gen and Redoubt (which I use mostly). This isn't a deal breaker if you are just sprinkling them into regiments but I don't like having units of large models next to all the rest that aren't. Just the way I feel, everyone is different.
|avidgamer||11 Jul 2012 8:27 a.m. PST|
I hear ya. I am so very hopeful that all I want is right around the corner. Hope springs eternal. :)
|sma1941||11 Jul 2012 9:11 a.m. PST|
Just great additions to the line. More please.
