The 10th Tennessee

Its been a while since I last added anything to my ACW collection and where better to start then a new unit of Rebs. I have a slight bias towards the southern states so I suppose it had to be a Rebel unit and an Irish one at that. I added an Irish unit to my Union forces so it's only fare to even up the odds.

As always my favourite Dixon Miniatures! I planned not to add any conversions but I couldn't find any suitable standard bearers so I had to convert a couple. So on to the troops

 24 little masterpieces, I'm talking about the sculpting not my painting. I'm a painter and collector so I only add units that catch my imagination or look different and despite the Blue and Grey backdrop to the uniforms there is still scope for some colour. 



 the rows of grey always need that bit of colour and what better colour to complement it than red. I've added a bit of variation in the uniforms rather than clad them all identically. 



 I have plans to add a few more units despite not having enough space to display them, but that's not going to stop me! I may have to have a bit of a clear out again. 

And finally a few pics of the guys lining up in front of camp. 





So hopefully Irish eyes are smiling, I know my eyes are smiling. I keep saying how much I enjoy my painting and yes once again I have enjoyed painting these guys. 

So thanks for looking, feel free to comment and I will hopefully post again real soon. 
Cheers for no

  4. They look excellent...basing, mix of colour and the flags. I too have a slight bias towards the Conferates.
