Here's some pix of the USA forces we've put together. Both Armies are nearing completion, there's some mounted Kentuckian Volunteers we're putting together. A few extra bits & some milliput top hats, then they will be done. Plus a few extra paint jobs on some old & battered Napoleonic figures, then the Americans should be there. I've now read through the rules, they seem fine. The rules utilise some coloured counters, these are printed off & laminated. Should be able to have a game the next time I get time off. What I forgot to mention is that we've based them on 28mm DBN bases, that way we can always use them in a DBN game later.
The first set to represent the US 16th Infantry Regiment. This motley crew began life as some Brunswickers, a new paint job & some dandy hat decorations then there they are. The US regiments seemed to go through a variety of uniforms, excellent for wargamers as you can't go wrong! These fella's wore black.
It was shocking to discover that the US Regiments didn't have a stars & stripes, but a national colour and a 'naff' regimental colour. Some sources show it as buff some yellow. We used the buff one, which we created ourselves. The national colours for US flags from Battle Flag http://www.battle-flag.com/
Dismounted US Dragoons, plastic Perry French Dragoons painted in nice blue US colours.
US Artillery, found these British Artillerymen in a bits' n bob box at a game show. Cost 2 quid, a few conversions, a touch up paint job later....
Another US Regiment, this time in the snazzy blue coat.
