ACW Progress - New Union and Confederate Units

Lots of progress has been made on the ACW front.  5 units of Confederate infantry and 5 units of Union (Iron Brigade) infantry are in the process of being based.  Roy Scaife is busy at work with these units but it is a major step forward for our initial ACW goal of 10 infantry units a side with 2 artillery units a side (enough to get us gaming using the Black Powder rules ... 2 brigades with artillery per side).  More of course to come ... our "wave 2" effort will double the unit counts ... and wave 3 adds cavalry.  Pictures below of the new units (work in progress).

Note:  Confederate flag poles are being swapped out for longer poles ... Roy is getting around to that shortly.

I'm looking forward to seeing these guys on the tabletop!
