Eventually, personally I would love to have more figures like this and a whole ball set, but the sad fact is that not many collect Civil War figures so it's a difficult choice, when other eras are more popular and sell better.

Edit: Now that I think of it there's already musicians for the ball, just need to make them stand still. So that part of the ball is almost done already.

FANTASTIC! I am with Gunnar. I would really love to have some more dancing couples!! This is also a great idea for the Napoleonic period!

Some more pics, maybe a bit creepy with the old man with that young lady, but maybe he's her father?

On the close-ups he doesn't look that old. And the fashion at the time was a full beard. For the men!!! Otherwise you can always paint him like a young man and her as an old woman.

You're right, and he does look very pleased too.

Yes camp figures would be nice and I hope we will make them some day,, though most would prefer fighting figures. But I wonder what people discussed by the coffee machine..And did they have latte?

Personally I prefer tea, but maybe the tea wagon is only in the British army?

Think I've read that the tea wagon was lost in the Crimea 1854/55.

What about some tents. I think big ones for an ambulance point are missing completely. The wagons are a good idea as well. Continue your great work!
