Iron Brigade - Sash & Saber


Well after two years of painting, basing and re basing and finally basing again, I have finally finished the Iron Brigade. The figures are from the very nice Sash & Saber 28mm ACW range and have been based for Regimental Fire & Fury. I have based them as per the other Union regiments in my collection, each base representing 50 men and Regiments of eight bases, which brings them to a respectable wartime footing for any campaign.


The Brigade will will see their first battle this Wednesday night in a re fight of McPherson Ridge, hopefully that will fight well and defeat the Archers Confederate Brigade...well we shall see how my dice rolling goes first....

Great looking Iron Brigade! Since switching from Brigade to Regimental Fire and Fury I'll need to paint up some more Iron Brigade and these Sash & Sabre look like they will fill the gap very nicely.
