The Confederate Army is complete!!

Sorry for the long delay in posting my painting activities but life has been busy and with the good weather time is spent out in the sun while it is here!

So over the last two weeks I have completed the two General stands that I needed to complete the Confederate Order of Battle for the Battle of First Manassas based on the scenario book from Altar of Freedom.  I also managed to paint up another house for the game and this great little stone fence, which can be used for the Battle of Fredricksburg.  It is modular so I can line up the 4 straight parts and it will provide cover for four stands of Infantry. That is a whole division worth of solders!!

I also took the time to take a picture of the whole army with the names of each brigade annotated.

Well next is to finish the buildings and build more trees for the terrain.  I am shooting for a game some time in May.

I hope you like the miniatures.

Have a good week!


  1. Always a great moment when we complete an army...and this one is beautiful!

  2. Thank you Phil, I agree it is great to be able to finish a project. I had made a list on a sticky note at work of the Miniature projects and goals for this year and all I have to do is run the battle of 1st Manassas and this one is done. Even thought it is just the beginning of more battles! Thanks for checking out my post!

  3. Wonderful work and great to see the army complete.

  4. Great work! I look forward to try Altar Freedom with these minis.
