Ghosts From My Past - Pt 1 (The Fenians)

Well, I have been on holiday for a week and have been cleaning up the basement.  As part of that, I also have been bagging up miniatures to sell off and reorganizing my storage of my stuff to keep.  While doing that, I have unearthed some of my older projects and decided to add them up on the blog for review.  First is my Battle of Ridgeway, 1866.  I only got the Fenians finished, but I have figures to do the Canadians.  Originally they were all mounted on individual bases, I have since decided to based them three to an 1"x1" base.  That is why you will notice that they have flocking around their feet, but the base is not done.  I am planning to revisit my Fenian Raids, 1866, project using Regimental Fire & Fury.

The IRA Regt'l command stands - since then, I found descriptions of the actual flags used at Ridgeway and plan to replace these with them
