The 9th Kentucky

I have managed to complete my latest additions for my steadily growing ACW collection, this time its more Rebs. Just for a change they are Dixon Miniatures! Like every single figure in my ACW collection. I am a creature of habit and slightly OCD about certain hobby matters.

   The 9th Kentucky

 I decided I wanted to portray a earlier unit from the war rather then the usual later years that I collect. I'm no expert and occasionally I do get it wrong hopefully this won't be one of those times. 

 This is one unit which I havn't tampered with by adding conversions or even stripes for NCO's. Normally I cant help myself but these are literally a straight paintjob. 

 The boys charging hopefully to glory! 

 I'm pretty biased I'm afraid, the rebs in my collection outnumber the Yankees and I dont think that will ever change. 
 

So thanks for looking, feel free to comment
Cheers for now Russ

  2. Those are very fine indeed! Old, but gold, as they say. A range of ACW figures never bettered in my view.

    1. I couldn't agree more. I think Dixon miniatures are very over looked by people. The detail, the character and the choice of figures, sets these aside from so many other manufacturers.

  3. A magnificent period, the proof, that we do not play enough unfortunately ... Superb minis, Rebs are a little funnier to paint than Yankees, aren't they?

    1. Thanks Phil, I agree the ACW is not as popular as it once was. I think people forget it wasn't just blue and grey uniforms and with Rebs you can have a bit more fun painting them.
