As the TAG pikemen before them, these TAG handgunners are nicely sculpted and take painting and staining well. Slightly more slight than the Old Glory and Foundry figures, TAG Renaissance figures fit in well with the other two. Would they mix within the same unit? I have not tried but could be considered. Foundry and TAG would match more easily within the same unit than Old Glory but the proof is in the pudding. I ought to give it a try to satisfy my own curiosity. A few TAG crossbowmen remain in The Lead Pile but more of these fine figures ought to be considered. Not having seen the TAG cavalry, perhaps a few should be on order as a sample?
Painting output has slowed in recent days due to other time constraints and the mid summer-like weather in the Pacific Northwest. With intermittent showers expected to descend upon Spokane for the weekend, perhaps attention can return to the painting desk? A second regiment of Austrian dragoons for the 1799 project are nearing completion with a dozen Russian lancers for the Great Game project to follow.
The 10mm ACW collection has been a long time in storage boxes. High time to bring them out for study and a game. Brawner's Farm scenario will pit five Confederate brigades in a surprise encounter against two Federal brigades. In this action, Gibbon's famous Iron Brigade gets its moniker. Will history repeat itself?
