very nice bennain!
you took the trouble to 'personalise' each character!
(i'm waiting for cuffs & collars...to 'refurbish' my US & CS armies too...thanks for the inspiration too!)

Hi cheng,

thx for the compliment. You can disoving your Proplem, if you spend only the Officers and the non comissioned officer the cuffs.

I know it, it is very difficult to make each figur as an individual person. For the future I have prepared 10 different heads for each regiment, so that I can them give some more recruits.

Best regards
Bennain

very 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.

So, now I'll present you my new custom. It was inspirated by figurs which was designed from Simmi and Funky.

I took a native american (indian) from Set 3733 (see Collector page 127) and then I removed the blue imprint. After that I painted the shoes and gaiters. finally I have given him some last details.

Best regards
Bennain

I've made some changes in the regiment structure, so you see the results.

Update: 17. Febr. 2006

My CSA Cavalry have reached the full strength. Here is a new pic without horses.
