This Late Unpleasantness
Posted by jackball74 on Saturday, February 11, 2017 4:25 AM

My first shot at the American Civil War. The figures in the foreground are from TSSD and the ones in the back are Imex. I also found that "fatwood" fire kindling sticks make great split-rail fences!

Looks great!  I found that split pieces of cedar work well for the split rail fencing as well.  That's what I used in my continental Militia figure.

What scale (roughly)  are these guys?

Thanks! They are 1/32. The TSSD are a bit more "beefy" than the Imex, but it's not much of a difference.

Very cool. I love the mix of uniforms and sizes. It makes it more realistic. Great job.

Yeah, that's some really nice work on both the figures and the fence.
