Hoods texans

Here is another batch part of the 1st texans, under General hoods command. I painted the flags on a newspaper and made the flagpoles out of one of the sticks you find in home decorating bouquet. The bases are pine, painted green with a magnetic strip on the top to allow for easier troop movement when playing brother against brother.

Ok this is part of my Hood's Brigade I just finished painting, they are based for the Brother against Brother Rule Set. Once I tried playing the game with these guys I had to create a base that would allow me to move them a little faster, so I created magnetic bases. I still don't know how to get the grass to stick to the bases very well, so I resorted to mixing elmer's glue with green acrylic paint. Let me know what you think.
