The miniatures actually were a gift from Marc who is also on the Union side. He figured they looked better on the table than in his drawer so to my delight he kindly gave them to me at our last game. I was very impressed with these Foundry models (I actually tried to order them from Northstar three days before but they were out of stock) so I started painting them the next day. Yesterday they have seen action for the first time and with good success. The report will follow soon. Again, thanks Marc, you will regret it.
The unit is not really part of the Brigade I'm painting but will be cool for our Terrible Sharp Sword games. Next up are the dismounted models.
Flag by GMB Designs, my default choice for this army.

Stylish Blogger Award
The chain letter reached me as well and I got a couple of nominations for a stylish blogger award over the weekend. I see a lot of discussion on the net about the value of the reward and the nature of chain letters. As I see this is just a little of harmless online fun, a nice way to promote other blogs and learn a bit of the person behind the blog.
But these things need to stop at a certain point, the fun is over because the award in itself is a topic now. So i decided to thank the fellow bloggers who nominated me because I really appreciate it and leave it with that. For a uberOprah moment I think all blogs are stylish in their own way and I respect the effort everyone makes in sharing their experiences online. Ok, you can put away the tissues now as this was my one and only Oprah moment.
And check their blogs, they are more than worth it!
