Dismounted Cavalry in 10mm

Following my earlier parade ground review of the 10mm ACW project (see 10mm ACW Project in Review), a need for fielding dismounted cavalry became apparent.  While a large number of half-size stands could be pressed into service to represent the dismounted horsemen, a bag of Old Glory figures lingered in The Lead Pile.  Having about 50 figures in the bag, why not paint and field them?  Why not, indeed!
Off the painting desk are 30 Federal and 21 Confederate dismounted cavalry.  All are based three figures per base in open order.  Under Regimental Fire and Fury, dismounted cavalry are always considered as being in extended line.
With a dismounted cavalry contingent ready for action, I can put the collection away until the next game.  Hopefully, 10mm ACW will be back on the gaming table soon.  Perhaps, I should look into developing a scenario?  Should a game focus on regimental-level BMUs or brigade-level BMUs?  Time to hit the books.

    1. I suppose you are right. Old Glory does not make them so I may need to improvise.

    You and Jake need to get your 10mm armies together on the filed of honor!

    1. Peter, we would certainly enjoy getting a game or two into the books early in 2016. Coordinating our schedules always poses a bit of difficulty. We live about 80 miles apart and winter driving conditions can be hazardous.

    1. 50 x 10s really don't take much time at all.
