Confederate Infantry Standing - Strelets

Another Regiment for the ACW Project, this time for the C.S.A.
Discounting the Bonus bod, a Streltsi, 21 poses.  Three aren´t much use in the regimental line up,  the camera man and two "Generals"  which means two repeat poses have to be drafted in the make up the regulation 20 bods per Regiment.
The thing I really like about these bods, the Minimalist Details. No hundreds of Buttons to paint, the sculpts have just enough detail to look the part and it doesn´t require  "professional level" painting skills to produce a decent looking bunch for the wargames table.
Not only that,  my set had ZERO Flash that needed removing!!!!
The Flag is the 16th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry.
It´s not due to the angle of the pic, the bods are genuinley different heights, just like in real life.
The camera man OOB,  looks away from the direction his  camera is facing but a quick neck twist and he faces the right way.
The two Generals are reckoned to be representations of Robert E Lee and  James Longstreet.
A bit of fun with the "spare" bods
The Generals line up for Phil the photographer 


  1. That's great - love the sepia photo!

  2. Great post Paul, Phil the photographer is my favourite, and the last two pictures absolutly superb and evocative...Wonderful!

  3. Nice set of figures - I like the inclusion of the photographer. Great painting as ever Paul.

  4. Hahaha, love the picture setting, well done!

  5. Brilliant work there, you paint 20mm figs better than I manage with 28mm models

  6. One more great scene, Paul. I think I will buy this set just for the photographer.

    1. And I have just bought it :) Thanks, Paul.

    2. I can´t really use him for´s a bit of a "scenery" type of bod but I´ve got plans to use him for other periods....and he might turn up to record the Progress of an ACW battle or two.
