I had a (rare) bad experience with ordering these from Baccus - they took about a month to arrive due to various reasons on their end, house moves, out of stock, etc. Not something I would normally post about, but I mention it because it was very annoying not to get any updates and to have to chase the order repeatedly. That said, I'm prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt and continue ordering from them, mainly because of the excellent quality of the miniatures and having had no other issues with Baccus before.
As mentioned in the last update, this represents a 1:1 scale Civil War-era battalia. It's one of the rare battalias which are composed of troops from the same regiment - usually two small regiments would be combined to make a single fighting unit.
|The battalia drawn up in line of battle. Colours and drums at the front of the central pike block, with two wings of shot either side. The lieutenant-colonel at the front (bottom), and sergeant major to the rear.|
|By creating some skirmish stands to interchange with the ordinary shot bases, you can clearly represent deployed skirmishers.|
|And using the colours and officer stands, seperate bodies of 'commanded shot' can be created.|

|The colours and officer stands are actually Irregular Miniatures' 6mm range.|
