|US Dismounted Cavalry|
Since most of the bags of figures purchased are in the advancing pose and not skirmishing, most of the regulars had no accompanying prone figure. Knowing that Old Glory has fulfilled special requests in the past, I added my special request of a few handfuls of prone figures to a buddy's Old Glory order. As expected, the order arrived with the bag of prone figures shown below:

Another item included in this latest Old Glory order was the church from the pirate range. When Jake brought up the box, I was surprised by the size of the church. It is HUGE. For scale, a battalion of 28mm Front Rank Portuguese are arrayed in front of the building.
The motivation for getting the church was my Peninsular War Napoleonic project. Upon further reflection, this fine piece could see service in Cuba, Mexico, and Italy too. I look forward to giving the church a coat of paint and making it a focal for a Peninsular War battle. Seems like a long time since the 28mm Napoleonics last saw action on the gaming table. Time to work them into the schedule. With a new piece of terrain, it will be hard not to plan an action soon.
