|I intend using these guys primarily as skirmishers in extended formation, which historically was their role when they were formed and which they performed exceedingly well as. However, I can also use them as a formed line unit if required.|

Berdan's Sharp Shooters
The silver lining to the Great Confinement is that I've had a little more time to catch up on some smaller projects that had just never seemed to get done before. One of these was the re-basing of a unit of Dixon ACW 25mm Berdan's Sharp Shooters that I had bought secondhand off one of the other Southern Strategists. This unit had seen a bit of action in the past and needed a bit of tarting up, plus re-basing. The tone of green used by the original painter is a bit duller than I would have used myself, but this didn't concern me enough to re-paint them. With the re-basing done and a few painting 'touch ups' these blokes are ready to take on the rebels.
