    Greetings,
    Another new release from the former Cromwell series - - -"Before the Battle" (#54004), Gettysburg, July 3rd 1863 three figure vignette 54-mm scale resin kit. Three infantry figures gather to pray before their participation in Pickett's Charge.

    Brief history: In the 3rd summer of the War, prior to the ill-fated assault led by Gen James Longstreet on the Union center known as “Pickett’s Charge”, members of the Army of Northern Virginia gather in the woods behind the artillery barrage. These now-seasoned veterans knew of the hazard of their task and gather in prayer.

    Hi John

    I remember this little group from back aways when Cromwell listed it. If my memory serves me, the sculptor was possibly Pete Barnacle. He did some good stuff for Cromwell and others, and had his own line too. Anyone in UK know what he's up to now?

    John,
    I saw this on your site yesterday and was very excited as this is one of my favs from this line. I'll have to see my way clear ordering one soon since the last one I had I used for parts :( Keep those Cromwell kits coming.

    Hi Al,
    I guess you are referring to the rebel with the long frock coat. Probably made from wool, I assume the longer length would make for an uncomfortable uniform during summer, but this was common garb for Confederates. I think we have gotten too used to seeing rebel figures with the shorter (waist length) jackets!

    Hi Phil,
    I wanted to give credit to the Cromwell series sculptor(s), but unfortunately (for me!) my relationship with them had a very bad ending and I never got that info. They did turn out to be quite unethical. I thought a gentleman by the name of Justin Young did a lot of their sculpting?

    Hi Matt,
    I do have lots more to go and the artillery crew is next.

    Regards,
    John

    John, is there anyway that I can get several of these kits? The subject of this vignette is what drives my modelling. I have been to your web site but I could not find it. Thanks.
