Casualties of Battle.

Earlier this year I was very lucky to be able to spend a few days at Gettysburg. While I was there I visited the local war games shop and came away with a small supply of reserves.

One bag I bought was Old Glory's ACW Hospital set.


 Found a couple of spare arms floating around not doing much so I added them into this stand.

 Another wounded Reb being brought in for the surgeon to his bit.


 A Confederate soldier helping a wounded Union brother.
There is a wagon with a couple of horses and a couple of riders, as well as another figure that I have yet to attack with a paintbrush.

  5. I have this set on my paint table. It is a new nice set. I plan to use this in my Black Powder games as a place to keep the casualty markers used during the game. I really need to get this done! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Nice work, especially with the extra arms! I remember watching a recent Waterloo documentary which showed amputation procedures with the big-ass knife and the saw. Sent a bit of a shiver down the spine.
