Fun stuff! An interesting historical period to model on 1:6 figures. Plenty of details to keep you busy perfecting!

Great looking VAM 7th Cavalry and Cotswold Civil War figures! The Union Artillery CPL is one of my future acquisitions!

Great figures, James!!!

I do like the Cots uniforms with the woven insignia and piping, but have a sentimental attachment to the VAM.

One might consider the Cavalry to be quintessentially American, but they were never offered for Joe. No cowboy for Joe either...at least AFAIK. We did have American Civil War figures, but those came much later.

The absolute best stuff is from Battlegear Toys:

a little pricey, but beyond belief in quality and detail.

cheers cheers cheers

Battle gear and New Line have amazing quality, but the price and small pieces take them out if the toy realm! By the 1960s age 70s, westerns just weren’t grabbing kids attention. John Wayne and Clint Eastwood got adults into the theater, but boys tended to play soldier or astronaut; hence the lack of a hasbro release. I was just in Gettysburg, and one of the stores had several boxed SOTW Civil War figs. Saw some of the sideshow ones when I was there a decade ago. My sole civil war figure is a Berdan Sharpshooter. DML body and boots, the rest is from the Sideshow release.
