[ACW] Berdan's Sharpshooters

So as part of the Gettysburg Refight scheduled for next year I have volunteered to help out!
I got interested in Berdan's Sharpshooters and when Pooch pointed out Redoubt Enterprises' Sharpshooters minis it was all over.
Now that they've arrived they are even better than expected, marvelous sculpts.

They will be about 4 stands of Wards Brigade. On the 5cm square bases that I think we're standardizing I will probably use 3 each, unless I mix them with my Perry plastics.

Yes they even have Prussian packs
The whole of Ward's Brigade will be 11 stands representing the 124th New York as well as the 86th New York, the 3rd and 4th Maine as well as the 20th Indiana and 99th Pennsylvania.
I'm gathering various details to try and represent these regiments and it should be fun.
I haven't ordered a General yet to represent Ward or Colonel Berdan, but I do have a cannon!
Thinking about some different heads as well, we'll see.


  1. Wow! These are going to look so nice. I will add your blog to the Harpers Weekly blog.

  2. They look very cool - something different to the blues + greys (with Zouaves thrown in). There many more units like that in the ACW - I know nothing about this period, despite its popularity!

    Cool to see the Bulgars coming along too. The Romans will always be there to fill them with arrows until I figure out if I want to get some Byzantines or Romano-British (Riothamus was touring the continent with them...)

  3. Rodger - Thanks mate. I'm looking forward to it. I'll get some test figures up soon.

    Jamie - Thanks bro. Bulgars are finished! Let Riothamus' eastern European tour commence!
