Maybe a newbie to gaming but you have similar books to mine so you must have done a lot of research!  Oh, I also checked the flag, I have the flags book too, you have that spot on!  :D

If you are doing both sides the bases do not need to be a certain size, all that matters is that they match!

Very nice looking unit - certainly different from other Zouave units.

Cracking looking unit. It's always nice to see a bit of colour in the ACW units.

Thanks again for the nice comments, chaps! There will be more "colorful" troops in the future. 

Joroas, I am just a bit annoyed by having so many marching figures on individual bases, it proved to be a bit of a pain to move those units during battle. I much prefer having four miniatures on a 40mm x 40mm base. The regular troops that is, skirmishers, dismounted cavalry and sharpshooters are a different story, of course.

I use 40x40 bases myself.  What I meant was as long as all your bases follow a similar size they will line up, especially for shooting and melee.  :D

Agreed!

... which reminds me, I really fancy ordering some of the ACW figures in melee poses Steve Barbers recently released. Could be a splendid way to put the left over 20x20 bases to good use.  8)

Very nice.
Love the color of the unit.
One can almost heard them singing "Dixie"as they march,
to the sounds of the guns.

Norman, it is a bit embarrassing, but I am fairly new to the pastime of wargaming. In fact, I have not seen action more than three times thus far. Those battles were fought according to the "Bull Run To Gettysburg" rule set.

Though my fingers are itching to get back into the fury of battle I plan to bulk out the forces a bit first. My aim is to have eight regiments of infantry, one regiment of cavalry and a battery of artillery for each side. So far the artillery and five infantry regiments each are done (well, almost ... for some reason I thought it was a good idea to base my first four regiments on 20mm x 20mm bases, hence there is also some re-basing to do.)

BRTG is a mighty fine set of rules - I found that playing games with them actually motivated me to paint more units (I am a notoriously slow painter). I am more motivated to paint Zouaves than normal troops though, so my forces are a bit Zouave heavy, but who's counting - and not one of my units is as dapper as this one.

Nice eye catching colour and something not often done on the Zouaves. 8)
