From My Workbench: American Civil War Prisoner and Escort Vignette

I recently finished an entry for the Guild forum's latest contest, any miniature project on the theme "Captured". My choice was a set that's been in my "lead mountain" for quite a while, from the out of print American Civil War line by Wargames Foundry. I haven't painted larger (28mm) figs in a while, and these were a treat to paint up and try some new techniques for the facial expressions. It was also good to return to one of my first loves, the ACW period.

Here's the unpainted set, which also included a delightful "footsore straggler". Remember to click on the picture to see a larger image:

And some shots of the finished set:

More images are found at my entry on the Guild forum.
