The 23rd MI Infantry
Hot off the painting table....the 23rd Michigan Infantry regiment! This unit fought at the
Battle of Franklin as part of Col. Orlando Hurley Moore's brigade. They were stationed
on the Union right flank between the 183 Ohio (2 companies) and the 118th Ohio.
I've tried to paint them with the look of a grizzled, veteran, Western theater Federal unit. The fences
were built with a bunch of craft sticks and I spent many hours gluing about 12 feet of fencing! I experimented with some different fence colors, but I think they look most natural with a grey "weathered" wash.
I've had enough painting for a while and it's time for a game!
My next blog report should be an AAR about a battle we have set up on the table right now!
