As the title says. I'm not actually that into kit bashing at the moment but I'd love to do a confederate to go with my wild west figures.

Also, anyone know where to get US union flags and confederate flags in 1/6th

Thanks

Here's an oldie I originally did back in 2010/11? now with a new updated copyright date. Not really a kitbash but mainly a redress of old Joes in DID type uniforms, there's only a slight kitmix in there (MAM trouser/pants, vam boots and a homemade rolled blanket..

http://actionmanmobileops.forumotion.co.uk/t1378-civil-war-postcards-final-showing, I've got enough gear to put a few MAM confeds together at some point  Smile

A very nice uniform, gideon! The confedarates are my favourites of the Civil War.

Some of those crazy confederates used to fight battles in bare feet because of boot shortages! pirat

I would love to see a Confederate 'Irish Brigade' kitbash, just look at those beautiful paintings, I have one similar on my wall..



Best American Civil War films to watch are: 'Gods And Generals' and 'Gettysburg' they're fab man films Very Happy

My favourites too! I did have a thread on here somewhere with all my kitbashes on it. Take a look at the movie 'ride with the devil' about bushwhackers in Kansas. Another side to the war.

Yes! That's another fab Civil War film: 'Ride With The Devil' I was trying to remember the name of that one but couldn't! Thanks for the memory jolt!  Very Happy

I like the bit when they ride up to a Union held town, whilst wearing captured union/North jackets, then they take them off to show their true colours and attack!..
Plus the bit where they lead the Union troops to a tree line, where the confederates dismount their horses and put up a good fight before retreating.

The thing to remember is that while we tend to think "Blue vs. Gray", most Confederate troops from 1863 on wore modified civilian clothes, often wearing "homespun items" or captured Union gear. The best Civil War films are "Red Badge of Courage" (unfortunately B+W for uniforms) and "Glory". For 1/6 scale flags, they sell desktop flags over here that are 1/6ish; maybe look that route.

I'll out myself and say that my alma mater commissioned the second most Union Army officers after West Point. Our ceremonial cadet artillery unit had a motto relating to that.

Superb photo's Gee. And thanks for that Info Nate, though I'm guessing the flag of the union would look a whole lot different now to then. Glory is one of my all time favourite films. Smile

As gray material ran out the uniforms were dyed butternut brown. Wearing US belt buckles upside down is a cool idea for southern kitbashes and Cotswold do a gray version of the US cavalry cap.

A colour PIC to show the uniforms better. The rubber boots work well as brogans.

I did a kitbashes once of a CSMC the confederate states marine corp. Can't find the PIC though. Basically it was the long gray frockcoat with white trousers. Simple but effective and different too!
