This morning I received an order for these figures.
I had some doubts about the quality of figures made in 3D from experiences with other manufactures .., its quality did not satisfy me.
however, I have been amazed at the quality of these. They don't have flash, some one smallest particle insignificant compared to most plastic figures and easily solved.
I was afraid that the details did not have enough relief to do a good job of painting, but despite not having painted any yet, I think you can get satisfactory results.
what has amazed me positively is the originality of the poses, which for an amateur like me to imitate paintings about war scenes (like the wonderful works of Don troiani or Ferrer Dalmau, for example) it give me the possibility of making vignettes full of action and very realistic.
I would love them to be a little bigger, but their size is not too small ... remember the ACW esci figures about that matter.
To sum up, thank you very much to the manufacturers and I hope they continue to make more and more infantry, artillery and especially cavalry poses with so high quality.

Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you Alfredo for your feedback, and I'm glad the figures arrived intact. I agree about the size of the figures, some of them need to be bigger, remember that if you place a new order you can always specify exactly how big you want the figures to be, so they fit your demands, that's also a good part of 3D printing, anything can be made according to the modellers wishes. Just PM me or email me at the address on the website.

Hope you have a great Christmas and enjoy the figures!

This looks like one of Jefferson Winkle's. A pioneer war photographer.

Another photo from the un-named mystery photographer. Seems like Meade is pushing more troops into the angle like there's no tomorrow!
