The American Civil War had TWO sides


Recommended Posts

Since it's Saturday night - and I've had a couple of beers - thoughts wandered onto the subject of modelling and having a look at what's available online.

The search for decent Union Army figures continues. There are numerous well rendered Confederate subjects, but Billy Yank seems to be an afterthought. Except for Romeo's superb (expensive) mounted cavalryman, there is jack-all as far as I can see.

Happy to be corrected on that, if anyone knows better........?

Have you tried Masterbox models? They have several 1/35 scale.

:hmmm: Two pints? Everards? Hope you remembered the asprin! Here ya go, didn't say what scale you wanted and if it was full figure or busts.

If the latter, suggest you visit the El Greco site first, UK based, mainly? resin https://www.elgrecominiatures.co.uk/  Then you have:- https://www.traditionoflondonshop.com and

https://www.dixon-minis.com/shop/54mm-75mm/

Have fun! :wicked:

Thanks folks.

I stalk Historex Agents like an obsessive loon. Current project was bought from them on a day when a staff member was being total jerk and annoyed me so much I needed retail therapy! 

I keep looking at the ICM offering and wondering. Their WW1 figs are decent... it'll probably drop thru the letterbox one day.

1/35, 54mm, 65mm are the scales I'm looking for.

I appreciate everyone's suggestions and will investigate them all.

Lot's of great suggestions.

El Greco and Historex Agents are my usual go-to for ordering figures from the UK.

I've always had excellent service from both of them.

Thanks folks.

El Greco has some nice stuff. Am going to investigate properly.

ACW is a real passion. Used to be a member of SOSKAN till uni became a thing.

Anyone covering that period well gets my enthusiastic vote. Especially the Union side.

All suggestions here are being checked over.

Thank you everyone.
