First Figures

First figures are complete. 32 union figures. I have used just the sack coat figures for the advancing figures to represent the standard union uniform.
The firing figures are a mix of sack coats and shell jackets . this unit will represent a Illinois regiment with some of the troops in the state issue jacket.
I have been of a mix mind for union head gear. Generally speaking western troops are thought to use the hat more than the kepi and this appears to be borne out in photos. However since this is an early war battle I am leaning toward more kepi's to show a more smart appearance.
Interesting to see how the light effects the color of the blue . All pants are the same color and are not the turquoise blue of some of the pictures. Also all figures are 25mm perry plastics
