I painted a division of them for Fire and Fury and played them whenever we felt like it. Actually in 15mm standing above the table and behind them you couldn't tell what color they were. Sort of a message there, they're all lead.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP wonders...

I was recently re-organizing my ACW Army at the same time my beloved family gave me a book on African-American soldiers in the American Civil War. Of my 50 Union units, exactly two are African-American (54th Mass and 1st USCT). As the keen historians will appreciate, 10% of the Union Army in 1864-65 were African-American. It seems to me that most gamers have relatively few, if any, African-American troops. Am I wrong?

How many African-American units do you have in your Union army?
