ACW- Fire and Fury- 1/72nd Union army of the Potomac and Confederate Army of Northern Virginia


     Both armies are at about 80% in Fire and Fury terms, 1/200 that is. Above is Reynolds I corps (Doubleday in command).


Hancock´s II corps and part of Sickles III  corps.


The rest of II corps.


Sickles III corps.


Buford dismounted cavalry. Many figures are scratchbuilt.


 Syke´s V corps. The figures in grey trousers are the Pennsylvania reserves.


Howard´s XI corps.


Custer´s Cavalry Brigade. Custer is a Strelets R foot figure modified into a cavalryman.


Now the Confederates. Longstreet I corps. Picket can be seen mounted waving his sword (scratchbuilt figure).


Hood´s division.


McLaw´s division.


General Longstreet and staff. Strelets R  and scratchbuilt  figures.


  Hampton´s cavalry.


Ewell´s II corps. Still Rodes division missing, but Jubal Early´s (see last post)  Smith´s brigade is already painted and stored.


Jonhson´s division. Some are the old but marvellous Airfix ACW figures.


  A.P. Hill III corps. Hill can be seen in his traditional red shirt and is also a scratchbuilt figure.


 Pender´s division.


Anderson´s division.

This period is great for collecting and wargaming. A time and a war in which  a few professional soldiers turned a mob of amateurs into heroes. Also last days of chivalry in US history.
