ACW1 Union Infantry

A nice litle find turned up the other day when I was able to get my hands on this pile of figures:
They are Ros Figures 25mm American Civil War Union infantry:
I painted one to see waht they would turn out like:
I think that this is a much nicer figure than the Confederate ACW 2.

There are no command figures, but they look fine alongside Minifigs S Range ACW figures:
Well, that ticks another figure off my wanted list!

Prussian Artillery - Painted

Over the Christmas break I managed to paint a set of Prussian artillerymen:

They are cast from originals by Old John.

Parcel from Old John

Some time ago I asked Old John if he could recast some of the more rare Ros figures. Well, after a great deal of hard work by John I have received a parcel full of French, British and Prussian command figures as well as some Prussian artillery - now where is my paint brush!

French Imperial Guard Officer

This little figure popped up amongst some Hinchliffe figures and I just had to buy him! He is part of the five figure command set for the French Imperial Guard Grenadiers.
He has a stunted sword, which is fairly common with Ros figures and he appears to have lost his pointing finger, but otherwise is quite a nice example.

A Nice Little Find

After months of very little, this nice group of Ros 25mm British centre company line infantry in stovepipe shakos turn up. They were hidden amongst some Hinchliffe giants. 

Their base is marked BI 2. It would be nice to find some flank company types as well.
