Another unit for the Fantasians, Bright and shiny and ready to rumble!
The 'Old Toy Soldier' look is certainly fast! My version is not terribly authentic if compared to the real thing but I like 'em like they are.
This puts me back on track for the planned mix of Union, Confederate and ..."special" units which I abandoned in 2016 to make a plausible Western US army for a fictional clash on the Prairies.
The Fort Henry Guard officer has now been cast and work will start on them and then, finally, maybe, a game!
EXCERPT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)
"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."
