ACW Wounded and Messengers

Messengers.? Do I really Need them? It might come to a Point where the games will require them but until then...Why not ?
For the confederates and from the Strelets Confederate Command set, the bod representing  , Major John Pelham. If...at any Point, the Project allows for horse artillery, he will be reinstated to his former role.
Luckily, the Strelets Union General Staff set has an ADC who fits the Job as Messenger

The  wounded and dead from the Strelets ACW range. I haven´t painted the bases the old School green yet and nor have I done any blood effects. They are toy soldiers made from plastic...and don´t  contain any blood.......

Pickett´s Charge 1. One casualty. Obviously the Regiment he belongs to  is having a good day.................so far.
Pickett´s Charge 2. Not doing so bad with three casualties but still not as bad as the....
...US Troops in attack (2) with 5 men down! 
US Troops in Attack 1. 
Obviously they could all be painted up as either Confederate or Union bods. Less obvious, unless for a dio..what could they be used for? Casualty markers perhaps. Me, I´d have preferred more actual marching, charging poses..the casualty bods could have been produced as a set seperately.

  3. Nice painting Paul. I can never understand why so many dead or wounded come in a box. I bet you could field an entire mix3d bag of an army with all them?

    1. Thanks Ray. Luckily they are attached to the command sprue so there´s only one of each pose per box. Still. I´d have preferred more officers instead of the casualties so I could create two regiments of 20 from each box instead of the one reg

  4. Nice painted bods. The gun handling of the soldier in Pickett's Charge 1 seems a little bit strange. is this a conversion or was the bod damaged?

    1. The bod is OOB. I think it would look better without the rifle which would be easy enough to remove and he could be put to better use as maybe part of a gun team

    1. Strangely enough, I´ve got my eye on a new range of 1/72nd scale ACW bods..particularily the dead and dying ones..and the artillery...and officers...and women
