Confederate dismounted cavalry


Finished another small distraction from my main goal of two reb brigades in Hood's division; dismounted cavalry. When I did a cavalry unit a couple of weeks back I soon realized it would be convenient if I could dismount them as well. So this is a generic unit to have some fun with in our TSS games. I don't think a unit of ten cav is very useful in Guns at Gettysburg so I might increase the unit size in the future as I think the foundry confederate cavalry are among the best figures money can buy.
Six of the figures are from the Perry dismounted cavalry pack. The officer is from Steve Barber and has a Foundry mini on the same base. Horse holder also from Perry miniatures.

I've added these pictures and a few more shots from different angles in the ACW Gallery

  10. Sir, What figures did you use? I'm keen on building the same units and am looking for dismounted confederate infantry with shotguns.

    Please help and thanks!

  11. @Munds3: Sorry for the delay in answering, I was on holiday. Six of the figures are from the Perry dismounted cavalry pack. The officer is from Steve Barber and has a Foundry mini on the same base. Horse holder also from Perry miniatures. 1st Corps do some decent dismounted models as well.
