ACW - Louisiana Tigers

Manufacturer:   Perry Miniatures
Scale:  28mm


a few weeks ago I received about 40 painted Zouaves from my Hungarian painting service.

He did, as always, again a very good job on these guys. 

I send the figures to him prepared with a primer and also fixed on washers.

After getting the figures back I put four of the figures on their bases measuring 40x50mm.

And here they are. Sorry for the low quality of the pictures. I will have to buy a new camera and also will have to build up a case where I can place the figures with a little scenery and also with perfect lighting.

The barn is self-made and about 10 years old. It is my first try to build houses on my own.

A good moment to show the two grizzly-bears I painted up about three or four years ago.

I couldn´t resist to make a little parade of all the confederates I already have within my collection.
Ok, artillery is still missing to complete the troop types.

I love the confederate cavalry. They look great with their grey coats and yellow facings.

Last but not least here comes the infantry.




  1. Awesome pictures and figures, love ht ewonderful details such as stripes...splendid!

  2. Excellent figures but I am really struck by all of your terrain. The mountain and rocks in the background are spectacular.

  3. Hi Jonathan,
    Many thanks for compliments.
    The rocks are just a few bigger stones from the woods behind our garden. The rock on the left side I bought in the aquaristic department from a diy-shop. It was about 10 Euros I think.

  4. Awesome! Really nice looking army. Great work on the barn too!

  5. Nice figures and an excellent set of pictures.

  6. A real nice addition to your collection Mike. They should come in handy someday.


  7. Your hired brush has done a nice job.

    1. Yes, Nik. I'm happy that Krisztian is painting several projects for me for I don't have the time.
