From ChristopherS: 28mm ACW Confederate Signal Station (60 points)

Christopher sends in this brilliant Confederate signal station that he did up for his ACW collection.

This is a Redoubt Miniatures model. Christopher prefers the Redoubt range over many others and I agree with his opinion as I have quite a few of their models - they are well-cast and very characterful.

'No army painter was used on this and I prefer it this way and will do so for the rest of my confederates. The signal flags are hand painted and the weathering done on the rocks and some of the tower were with MIG pigments. The flowers and trees are from "Heki" I believe.'

Christopher thought he'd get this done for some 'quick points' but it ended up being a more involved project (as we can see). The composition and groundwork are fantastic. This is such a great centerpiece model and would be a great objective model for a skirmish game.

The base points for the figures in this diorama is 30 points but I'm going to double it for the entire compostion - so 60 points. Beautiful work, Christopher!
