    Greetings,
    New kid on the block - Minie' Ball Miniatures. New line of 54-mm resin kits (American Civil War era) sculpted by Alan Ball (except where noted).
    Too many releases to post all photos. Line includes 4 figures and accessories, including portrait heads and 3 different types of cavalry carbines.

    3rd NJ Hussars ("Butterfiles") #MB-01

    Other figures include 6th LA Vol Infantry (barefoot), 2nd Regt, Cherokee Mounted Rifles, CSA (unusual subject!)

    Potrait head (54 mm) of Confederate General Jubal Early #MB-PH01 (4 other portrait heads available)

    Matt & Alan,
    Oops. Sorry for the mis-quoted sculptor! I corrected the post and have given proper credit. (Thanks for pointing that out!)

    Stephan,
    I'm not sure if Minie Ball is setting up distribution in Germany, but I can ship to you.

    Poch,
    I am not sure who she was, but am researching on the internet myself. I'll also ask Bob Cotrell, the owner of this line. I'll post a reply when I find out. My guess is she has some historical significance based on diaries or nursing(?)

    Regards

    Poch & Alan,
    The scoop on Lorena of Winchester - there was a popular song with the troops during the Civil War entitled "Lorena". A couple of more figures are planned later this year to complete the series. Imaginative idea!
