24th Michigan

This weekend I primed up 30 figures Old Glory "Iron Brigade" figures that will become the 24th Michigan Regiment of the Iron Brigade (1st Brigade, 1st Division, I Corps, Army of the Potomac).

I got about half the unit completed, painting 3 figures or 1 stand at a time. Currently my plan is to paint up 10 stands for each unit (unless like the Vermont Boys there were 15 stands) and a 1:2 ratio for Artillery. That ratio should allow me to drop down to 1:100 and 1:200 fairly easily if need be. However for now...

Once I complete the 24th Michigan that gives me the 2nd Wisconsin and the 24th Michigan out of the Iron Brigade and the 14th Brooklyn out of the second brigade complete. I have the figures short command for the 147th New York, and a third unit tbd out of the second brigade. That leaves 3 Regiments out ot the Iron Brigade and 2 Regiments of the 2nd Brigade. To complete the 1st Division. Man that is a lot of figures.

I have 30 of the 36 artillerists and I am pretty sure all the actually artillery pieces.
