Seeing a call out from Forgotten & Glorious (website) to receive a free sample figure, I jumped at the chance to examine a sample up close. I requested a figure their 28mm ACW range; specifically a figure from the 14th Brooklyn Chasseurs. The 14th Brooklyn (84th NY) wore a French style chasseur uniform. Quite a smart looking uniform and don't call them Zouaves!
When the envelope arrived in the post, I opened the package and was amazed at the quality of the figure. Really, this is an outstanding bit of sculpture. The figure had a glob of metal on the right hand which I tried to remove. I thought I had done a good job on removing the excess until I began painting. In the photos, the remnant of the glob is visible. Other than that extra metal on the right fist, the figure is stunning. Details are nicely raised and easy to paint. To my eye, the figure is brilliant.
One question I have is how many regiments other than the 14th Brooklyn wore the French style chasseur uniform? I am sure Scott already has the Sash & Saber 14th mustered into his ranks so little need for a second regiment. Still, a very tempting figure.
