15 mm ACW Command

At the end of August I posted the result of one of my impulse buys from Britcon: a set of 18 mm Confederate generals from AB Figures. I really enjoyed painting something other than my usual medieval figures. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to try painting a few more.

Having managed to track down some 15 mm Roundway figures I decided to put together a new command element. Here are the results: I took the trouble to create my own flag (see below) as the Freezywater flag was smaller than I wanted. I ended up using an 18 mm version. I knew there was a reason I get my flags printed in four sizes. For my own reference, and because pictures of Roundway
