From SamuliS: 6mm ACW Union Brigade (85 points)


Samuli switches gears and so sends in this great Brigade of wee Union infantry for an upcoming Gettysburg project.

From Samuli: 
My next entry is a change in scale and era to something completely new for me. I've never painted anything smaller than 15mm before and ACW is also something I'm not too familiar with. Still you have to try something new every once in a while and as we have a 6mm Gettysburg project going on at my club I decided to pitch in with a Union force and here is the first brigade done.

I was really impressed by the amount of detail on these Baccus minis. Didn't expect them to have any proper faces or webbing on them. Still nice and fast to paint even with all the detail. A good quick project to get some change between larger scale stuff.


Brilliant stuff Samuli! 6mm is great for allowing collectors to put together an army for a relatively small expense and not demanding an acre of room to play a large battle. 

These diminutive bluebellies will give Samuli 85 points. Great work!

  6. Excellent work Samuli. Baccus does have a good reputation for turning out fantastic 6mm.

  8. 6mm ACW seems popular at the moment. And these are great.

  9. Thanks guys!

    Yeah 6mm and ACW seem to be quite common when looking through the blogosphere. Even here in Finland I know numerous guys collecting, when normally finding anyone with any blackpowder era minis is quite hard and I don't really know too many outside our club. Maybe the scene is starting to shift from warhammer and warmahordes to a more historical setting as people get older (fingers crossed).
