American Civil War CSA Army 10mm

I finished another project, which is the 10mm Pendraken Miniatures Confederate States force for the American Civil War. The force will be primarily used for Bloody Big Battles, though it can of course be used for other rules as well (the excellent Altar of Freedom systems for example, and perhaps Longstreet with its role-playing elements). The flags are mix of my own works and a flag sheet kindly given to me by Stone Mountain Miniatures (who have an excellent ACW 15mm  range).

This army is a matched pair with my previously completed USA army for the same war. I am almost done with my 19th Century Collections. I have a Ottoman 1877,1897, 1912 Army with two matched pairs for it, Greeks 1897, and Russians 1877/8. I now have a ACW matched pair. The final army I will make, is the army I always wanted, a 1866 Austrian Army. After that time to move on to other periods or projects.

The army was painted to a basic war-gaming level. But I am satisfied with how it came out. Here are some, problematic quality, photos.

Updates! Updates! Updates!

It has been a bit of a while since I updated the blog. With the end of the Last Century of the Ottomans BBB Campaign we all took a bit of a break from heavy miniature war gaming. Well as a group. I did get a game in, participating in a large 9th Age (Warhammer derived game) game at the Karargah Club. I used my Perry heavy late medieval army as empire. While my side lost, my army in general gave a good showing. You can see a video here

Beyond that I am heavily playtesting the Bloody Big Battles Balkan War scenarios. Two of them have been play-tested more  than once, and two only once. So there is a lot of work to do. Any help would be very appreciated.
