28mm Sash and Saber ACW Mounted Officers

I recently ordered some Sash and Saber figures from Chris Hughes. Chris is a great guy and sculpts S&S when he has free time from his full time sculpting gig at Old Glory. I ordered a pack of mounted USA officers, Gen. John Gordon and three packs of the 14th Brooklyn (1x command and 2x marching). The figures arrived in about a week, well packaged and with no damage. I was impressed with the sculpts and the customer service and will be ordering from Sash and Saber again. These are really great figs and I rank them right up there as "tied for first place" with Perry Miniatures ACW.  Here are some pictures:

The five mounted officers -  I ordered pack OUS20 - Mounted USA General Officers (4 figs). I painted them as CSA officers, except for one. Also pictured (left) is OCS1 - Gen. John Gordon.

I painted these specifically for a game of "Across A Deadly Field" at Nashcon 2014. I was short a few officers!

Charge!

Another  mounted officer. I'm not finished with the 14th Brooklyn, but I'll post some pics as soon as I finish. Now I'm off to work on some terrain for the Nashcon game!

  1. The Confederates look great, I think the Union General is to light of blue, perhaps a black wash may give a dark blue effect?...

    I too have Sash and Saber, which are the best sculpts ever, Civil War mounted Generals, one day I will paint them up... which rules are you using for your Civil War gaming?

    kind regards,
    Phil

    1. Phil, I do paint my Union figures a slightly brighter shade of blue. I think it looks better at a distance when gaming (the 2 foot rule). I generally use Johnny Reb 2 or Across A Deadly Field.

  2. I love them Cory, and the dappled grey is just superb.
