Peach Orchard looking West
The boxes of painted miniatures arrived a week ago and I am very pleased. Reinforcements are always a joyous occasion.
I also received another shipment of NEW US GMB flags. These were not generic state flags but specific to the 3rd Corps. Grahame does ‘requests’ and I got a brigade worth and then some, 12 regiments. I also put my requests in for others but he’s so busy at the moment so I’ll have to wait a bit. I certainly need US battery flags/guidons. Seeing as I already have all the generic flags I need it’s not a big deal at this point. All the CSA flags needed are purchased and sitting aside waiting for Color Guards to be finished so I’m good there. What I need are only Hood's and McLaws' divisions.

I’m starting to think I will need to do Caldwell’s division of the 2nd Corps and plus the brigades of the 5th Corps. I thought I could avoid those but… for completeness I think I might contemplate their involvement in the game. Why not? Looks like another order of miniatures is needed. When will it stop?!
I will post some pics of the new painted models as soon as time permits. I'll be running a demo or two at Cold Wars in March. This won't be officially listed in the PEL though.
At Christmas time I fell back into working on the Ultramarine Chapter ‘side’ project. *sigh*. I already have 4 full Companies and… well, I couldn’t resist the urge. Painting all these ACW models was getting rather wearying so I needed a break.
