15mm ACW - Confederate Officer

I am nearing the end of my 15mm American Civil War Confederate collection, so I thought I would post my last character figure.

This officer, with a straw hat and a VERY large caliber flintlock pistol, has been in my 15mm ACW collection for
years and years. He was a part of a gift from a buddy of mine for Christmas many years ago; he painted up a few officers for my collection, I painted up an artillery battery for his collection. Over the years the guys have gone to the shelves as they have been bypassed by newer and more beautiful troops, but recently we got this guy, who was always a favorite, out and repainted and rebased him; we call it "reclaiming" an old figure. As he is a formidable bad-ass, he is surrounded by dead and dying Federals.

..that's no flintlock - it looks like a sawn-off shotgun! :o)

Right? I think our old name for it was "the big badoushka." No special rules for it, although a spread shot would be kind of funny:)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
