Tough at the top

Sharp eyed readers may have noticed this duo in some of my photos of the recent Gettysburg game.  They are the Tradition of London figures of General Pickett (the beardie in blue) and a Confederate cavalry officer.  Both were bought as metal castings and daubed by me.
Both sport examples of mid 19th century facial hair, giving the cavalry officer a rather 'Village People' look!  The high-gloss finish is partly due to the varnish still being moist when the photos were taken.

Very nice figures Tim. Good Command figures are fairly rare on the ground As for tough at the top, I have also found it to be lonely as well :)

It was particularly nice to have the General oversee a successful uphill charge!
