The third regiment in my 28mm Federal brigade marches off from the painting desk. That regiment is the 10th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment or the National Guard Zouaves.Figures are the last of the Sash & Saber Zouaves I picked up years ago. While the sculpting is generally quite good on Sash & Saber figures, I found many of these Zouaves to have a number of misshapen faces. No matter, from eye to table distance these ugly mugs will not be noticed.
With their colorful and flamboyant uniform, these recruits will brighten up the typically dreary ACW battlefield. Having two Zouave regiments in my brigade, they may not find glory on the battlefield but will look smart trying!
With three infantry regiments and four guns in the brigade, I think it time to pull all of the troops out for a parade review. That parade review will be coming up soon.
