This is the first post about my upcoming project, a Union brigade, to play the long campaign in the Longstreet rules, by Sam Mustafa. I've created my unit from Porter's brigade at First Bull Run, in 1861. Once I'll have the basics done, I'll add more units.
Voici le premier de mes billets consacres a ma brigade pour Longstreet. Mes premieres unites appartenaient a la brigade Porter lors de la bataille de Bull Run. Par la suite, j'ajouterai d'autres elements. Bon, vous me pardonnerez, mais cette fois, j'ai fait un peu long, et uniquement en Anglais.

Now for the minis: They're from Old Glory, in 15mm. To my knowledge, only Freikorps does them in 15mm, and you only have one pose. So I went with zouaves, and, with a proper paintjob, they do the trick. The standard bearers are conversions.
