Gordon and Hague ACW Miniatures Arrive

The troop shipment arrived today from Gordon and Hague. So far I've only opened the Union troops.

Approx $69 worth of Union Troops
I'm happy with my purchase. So far, I've only discovered two figures separated from the stands during shipping. I'm curious about the ACW flag sheet for $3.50, meaning the value of it. I'll wait til I attempt to raise them to make final judgement.

I can see adding a couple touches of drybrush, flocking, and magnets to the bottom.

This is a great chance to get into a new period while still keeping time freed up to paint my main focus, WWII.

I will buy more and look forward to the Gordon and Hague future releases. 

See the first and less good youtube video here:

And here is the Picasa album:


  1. Thank you for the review. It was quite useful!

  2. Painted and based figures in a blister pack, what will they think of next!!

  3. Looks interesting...if only I had not started buy 15mm's.


  4. Linked here from your post on the HMGS/PSW mailing list and was altogether too excited about these figures. In fact, I then went and spent a TRIFLE more of my Christmas money than I planned taking advantage of their 45% off clearance sale on booster packs. I don't know whether to thank you or curse you! ;-)

    BTW, where are you located? I'm up in the Santa Clartia (CA) area. Will you be at the January Mini Wars convention?

  5. Thank you for the comments.

    I'm in the St Louis area.
