Next up, I have a few of photos of the train station and water tower that I completed last weekend. These models will be used to represent Bristoe Station for my upcoming Battle of Kettle Run game. The station is a resin model from Jerry’s Hobby Junction’s N scale “Early American Structures” line. The water tower is an old pre built plastic model railroad building manufactured by Revell. I’m looking forward to getting these models on the table soon.

Today, I have some photos of my freshly painted artillery limbers. These figures are from Pendrakens new Civil War range. This batch consists of eight Union and eight Confederate limbers. For mostly esthetic reasons, I decided to make the switch from having two horses per limber to four horses. I’m very satisfied with this change, so going forward I will probably switch all my limbers over to four horses. The only downside to this is that I will need to paint twice as many horses. At times, this was a little painful when painting this last batch of limbers.

My friend Bill, who is the owner of Cracker Line Miniatures, has just sent me some photos of his newest additions to his growing 10mm American Civil War range. These new additions include a galloping limber team, several new mounted commanders, and a new artillery crew. What makes these figures extra special is that they were designed to resemble the troops that fought in the western theater. Here are the photos.
In addition to the figures pictured above, Cracker Line plans to release cavalry in the first quarter of 2014. For more information on Cracker Line Miniatures please visit their web page; Link
