  6. You always come up with the most creative things. I read your replies and you said you just grabbed a weed from the back yard to make the tree. Now that's a good price for scenery! Embedding the flags is a really nice touch as it gives the overall work a stamp of integrity.

  7. Great looking Tigers Captain. My fav Reb unit, the first unit I painted for my 15mm reb army and then 28mm too.

  9. I was in a reenactment 10 years ago and seeing the "Tigers" sudden face off with the 5th New York Zouaves out of the smoke was amazing even if it was all in "fun." A very colorful historical unit. Great figures Captain.

  17. I've been searching high and low for flags for Wheat's Tigers. I'm familiar with the state flags shown, but can't clearly see the blue flag in the pics. What flag is that, and where can I see a plate or copy of that flag?
