I know its not exactly what you were looking for, but if you can find minis for it, this could be a decent base. (Squad of 4 btw)

Having not read the rest of this thread, there's also some Confederate units floating around here on 'scapers, but I don't remember any details about them or where they may be flaoting.

My customs.

Sharpshooters would work, of course. Something mixed up like that, all in one big box.

(And I know that Little Mac never served and never would have served under Grant.)
Necro, but I really miss the Rev...

I think this would have been an awesome master set...two squads and three heroes for each side. Perhaps a cannon unit (or cannon vs Gatling gun) for each side as well.

I understand this but that just makes it a challenge for the designers (and it's also neat to see the timeline that this was discussed in)...perhaps a skill similar to a combination of the Roman Archers and Roman Shield Wall would work out. Squad members side by side can add dice to each other (up to a maximum) and have one shot of a large number of dice vs individual shots.

As someone who knows very little about the american civil war and has no dog in the race (I'm not an american), but I'd love to see a master set based on this.

And then add C3V's 20th Maine and 53rd Sharpshooters...

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Re: Civil war units for Heroscape

Please make sure that you check out C3V's 20th Maine and 53rd Carolina Sharpshooters.

I intend to come up with 6 customs for this. An infantry, artillery and unique hero for both sides. I'll probably focus on one of the border states (most likely Kentucky) to educate myself before presenting any of the customs here - will actually be in the customs thread not in this official units thread. I may not be able to come up with figures for them without the help of the community but if you see anything out of line, let me know.

Some simple rules for myself will be to not use Generals for heroes since they most likely lead from the rear (again I don't know a significant amount about the US civil war so if I'm wrong, correct me) but will probably use captain's or majors.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

I've added the Union cards to my customs thread.
