Re: Southern Zouaves

The reinforcements have arrived. So now the mixed Zouave regiment has the 10 stands it needs for the Longstreet rules. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn123/twilkodragon69/Projects/Painting%20log/2017/November/20171101_233704.jpg The Maryland Guard. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn123/twilko...

Re: Exotic Southerners for ACW.

Well the troops are done now and will post them in the Display Cabinet shortly. Pickett is still at the tailor's so that just leaves the gun. So Masters for the carriage. Not quite finished as I need to add some detailing but well on the way. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn123/twilkodragon69/P...
