I bought this little ACW vignette from Verlinden last year and decided to have a go at it while my eyes can still cope with 54mm. The Union officer is a Captain from the 9th New York (Hawkins) Zouave Regiment holding a drawn sword in his right hand. He's standing over the body of a dead Confederate soldier from the 1st Virginia Regiment at the Battle of Antietam. Thanks to Steve for his help with the research on these two figures. Both figures have been base coated,and I've done some shading and highlighting on the dead Virginian, but no weathering as yet. The Zouave officer has just been base coated so far, no highlights or shadows done yet. I plan to some more research on the look of the actual battlefield at Antietam before I decide where to place the officer and what type of groundwork and vegetation to add. Hope you like it so far.
