... otherwise the Brooklyn Chasseurs. These are Sash & Sabre 28mm figures which I bought from Old Glory UK last year - whose mail order service was efficient and speedy I should say. I hadn't been able to fix on a suitable Dixon Miniatures figure to proxy for them, so I took the plunge! I like the castings, but somehow they never made it up the queue for painting, just languishing in the Lead Pimple. So, I asked Phil if he could fit them in sometime amongst his commission work and I'm pleased to say he accepted! This is the finished unit ~
Well, I say finished, but they were very nearly not! Stupidly I forgot to check that I'd ordered their flags, only to find that I had not! Doh! I put it down to age myself... I have sorted that omission out thanks to Flags of War, along with some others I fancied for the figures still lurking in the Lead Pimple! Phil has also got the Crusader Miniatures 79th New York Volunteer Infantry to paint when he can fit them in later in the year; we pensioners have to watch our pennies even at 'Mates Rates' from a friend you know! Still lurking in the ol' Pimple are three units of Dixon Miniatures ACW infantry, two Confederate and one Union. I hope to get those painted this year, sometime...well, you know how it is I'm sure.
