Been a bit slow progress recently , too many games played  lol , plus other stuff that needed doing. Anyway another unit completed.


Again AB Figures (more from you rumacara) except for the regimental standard bearer, Blue Moon.

Next up seven more bases of Blue Moon infantry and some terrain from TimeCast and Ironclad Miniatures.


For a bit more see Blog

Some of the previously mentioned terrain items have been completed, so I give you the TimeCast bridges and rivers..




I had several false starts with the river colour selection and also a few procedural errors whilst painting them, I go into more detail on my blog. Overall I am very happy with the bridges not so with the rivers but we live and learn.

Another item I quickly knocked up were some Heavy casualty markers for Fire & Fury. Not having any suitable miniatures I went with a basic yellow flag as used by both side to mark field hospitals.


As noted more in depth musings on these items on my blog at Jabba's Wargaming

Further update.

Another Infantry brigade completed, this time all Blue Moon Figures.


Also the hasty fieldworks from TimeCast.


As well as the Fences from Ironclad Miniatures.


This gives me a Union force that currently looks like this.


More on these including paints used can be found at my blog Jabba's Wargaming

Gorgeous they are and very nice terrain pieces! I wish you a good continuation to your project!

I really like the Blue Moon ACW range even though they are quite big for 15s.
"One of My Men Became Restless" focuses on 15mm Horse & Musket periods and 25mm Horse & Musket, Fantasy, Horror and Victorian everything! Occasionally there'll be stuff of related interest but it's mostly a painters blog.  See it all here: http://flashman14.blogspot.com/

Great thread. I have done a lot of 15mm ACW in the past. Such a good period and scale. Really great to see this army and terrain developing so well.

After a bit of a delay, some other projects got in the way, another update. A further Brigade, slightly different paint colours this time, some casualty/disorder markers and my attempt at snake rail fencing.



Figures Blue Moon with I think one Old Glory 15s standard bearer. Need a more matte varnish.



Figures by Old Glory 15s



Matchsticks and tongue depressors.
