The 118th Ohio Infantry
This is my interpretation of the 118th OH Infantry. These are 28mm Dixon ACW
figures. I used a lighter blue wash on the uniforms, but I think it still looks "right" from the 2ft wargaming
perspective. My older Union troops were painted in a dark navy blue, and they look quite dark
on the gaming table. This is the last unit I needed to paint to finish a brigade, and so I currently have Rebs
on the painting table. I have to mix it up a little bit to keep it fresh!
The 118th OH was a veteran unit recruited from Lima, Mansfield and Cincinnati, Ohio in August 1862.
They fought in the Atlanta Campaign, Franklin-Nashville Campaign and finally in the Carolinas. They
were mustered out on June 24th, 1865. I am painting troops from the Battle of Franklin and the 118th OH
fought on the main line of works between the Locust Grove and Carter's Creek Pike. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/118th_Ohio_Infantry

pics of the entire brigade soon.
|Marching past the General! I can't wait to get these guys|
on the gaming table.....although my freshly painted troops
always seem to rout in their first game!
|Rear view - these are based for "Johnny Reb 1 or 2" - each figure|
is 20 men so this is a 500 man regiment.
