Splendid armies.  But, do I suppose that they are only samples, how much have you soldiers in all?  Nordists and Southerners?  Thank you

nice work bennain!  :D
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

Hi Paul,

I haven't count my troops, but I think I have round about 70 US and 35 CSA soldiers. It isn't a very large army.

In the future I will build up some new troops. You can see it on the picture with the three differend coloured soldiers of the US. Ithink that will give this more realism!

Best regards
Bennain

Hello!

So, I've rebuild my infantry regiments. Simmi and Cooster give me some inspirations and ideas to create this troops.

I use for this customs only the specials 4622 (confederate soldier) and 4628 (union soldier). At first i chanded the equipment from south to north.  :D  (THX Simmi) Then I also changed the legs in the same way. Because I think the little bit darker trousers looks better by the union soldier. The next step was to coloured the caps in the real infantry style.
At last I will create some decals for the caps. The union will get a harp sign, because they represented the 69th New York Infantry Regiment (1st Irish Brigade). For the Southern troops I haven't an idea at moment.

So, and now enjoy the pictures!

Best regards
Bennain
