Found some more painted cav on eBay, but now it's getting dicey. They're in England and I've found that shipment times from there can vary wildly, from a week to 2 months......

And I can add Canada as another place I've gotten painted figures from. It's getting really international here.

Get labels on the bases and Hampton's brigade and 10 of the 11 CSA gun stands will be done, joining Jones' brigade as game ready, including dismounts. I'll get pics taken of them in formation tomorrow and post them.

The one thing that plastic boxes lack is $#(*#$)(*%#&#(*# guidons. Occifers, buglers, dudes feeding hay, but standard bearers are rarer than hen's teeth.
