The last holdout of the Dutch Waterbicycle Detachement sends in his first submission and a cracker it is.
First are figures that are part of a larger unit I painted near the end of December for our US - Mexican game.
To bad I started the other 4 to soon. Figures are from Boot Hill and are an absolute delight to paint.
My second submission is a Union mortar battery with command
The mortars are from a small company called T A Miniatures. The figures are from Redoubt, I had the same problems as Rob with these figures.
This flag, and as a matter of fact all my flags for ACW are from the Flag Dude (Rick O’Brien), excellent stuff.
The 13” Union Seacoast Mortar saw action in many different theaters in the ACW. This Mortar was also very popular with Grant. He used them at Vicksburg.
The 13” mortar had a maximum range of 4,300 yards and where more accurate than their smaller counterparts.
Wow, brilliant stuff Jacco. All of these figures are great but those mortar vignettes are tremendous. Beautiful work.
This submission will give Jacco a base of 150 points but I'm adding another 25 for the artillery vignettes and overall composition of the bases. Well done Jacco and welcome aboard!
