The 95th based and ready for Black Powder
First recruited in March of 1862 as part of the 1st Division of 1st Corps, the 95th NY saw action in such notorious battles as Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and most significantly at Gettysburg under Gen. Reynolds. After Gettysburg some veterans reenlisted for a second run along with new recruits, which saw the 95th in action all the way to the Appomattox Campaign. At muster out in New York only 70 soldiers remained of the 1749 totally enlisted during the war.
I've painted the unit in winter uniform with a reference to their engagement at Fredericksburg.
Coat colors are a mix of sky blue and dark union blue, to give that unique civil war feeling.
Detail: Superb flags by GMB.
Stunning paint work !!!ReplyDelete
Like the rounded edges of the bases.
Best regards Michael

Absolutely fantastic painting. The dark blue is top notch.ReplyDelete
Top notch work! A very nice unit.ReplyDelete
That's some great work there. I love the figure mix. What manufacturer are they from?ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone! The blue used for Union Blue is actually Foundry French Blue shade 65A, washed up with Nuln Oil. Figs are Foundry too - and the rounded bases Micke mentioned are from Victrix. On to painting Confeds now, some of Longstreets Georgians waiting on Mary's Heights...ReplyDelete
Very nice looking union regiment!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing this. I'm sure we are more than a few wargamers of this period who will benefit from this when basing the units.ReplyDelete
Do you have any sources on those flags and are they historical ?ReplyDelete

The 95th is my hometown regt. 2 companies were recruited in my hometown. Little note, they really weren't engaged at Fredericksburg. They were basically held in reserve. But nice job on the figures.ReplyDelete
