The 14th Brooklyn Militia (also known as the 84th New York Infantry) was one of the more colorful units in the Union Army of the Potomac. They fought at Gettysburg, including a spirited charge on July 1 in the fields west of town across the Chambersburg Pike. They later were on Culp’s Hill as reinforcements. Pawel has brilliantly painted these wee figures, which appear on his friend Maciek’s wargaming blog With Zeal and With Bayonets Only.
Another famed unit at Gettysburg were the Pennsylvania Bucktails, which sported the tails of white deer in their headgear as a unit symbol. Many of the men were deer hunters from the mountains of west-central Pennsylvania.
Another view of the 14th Brooklyn – note the impressive amount of detail Pawel captured at the tiny 10mm scale.
The figures are Minifigs and Pendraken.
