L'attaque des Zouaves
Wait for it... wait... yep, I can feel another Perry's order comin' on! (OK - that was just for my fellow bloggers - do NOT tell She Who Must Be Obeyed - Minister for War and Finance who will likely remain unimpressed with my conspicuous purchases of yet more figures!)
Blame it on the Redoubt Zouaves I fixed up - if they hadn't turned out so well... I love the detail on these figures, they are so well sculpted. Second only to the VMI ones I already had.
What I've done with these photos is to add a few atmospherics to suggest battle - under hot Federal fire, the VMI boys go in! (Brave lads those!)
The figures in the front (Zouaves, gun & crew) are Redoubt, those behind are Perry's - mainly plastics from their ACW Infantry box (couldn't resist, had to buy another box to complete a second Confederate brigade!)
The other 'Brave Colonel' figure came from the Perry's Zouave Command sprue - the officer figure with a different head (Victrix?) - just to mix it up a bit as the Perry's plastics only have one officer pose, which is a bit boring.
In addition to the infantry I will have to do a cavalry unit up. Twelve figures mounted (Perry's plastic set?) plus same dismounted skirmishing AND two sets of horse holders. I think I have to order those as they appear very hard to come by in 28mm. I need a similar set for my ECW dragoons too - ah, decisions, decisions!
And that's the last one - the three command figures are metals of different makes mixed in with stands of Perry's plastics. The Dixon drummer has a head like a melon but apart from that they don't seem too odd. Apologies for my indulgence, particularly as I haven't been posting much recently. Hopefully be able to get onto some other figures (like my long awaiting Poles!) soon.
