Hardee, Cleburne, and Artillery

And some more of my 15mm American Civil War project completed.

My Confederate force is based upon Lieutenant General William J. Hardee's Corps of the Army of Tennessee at the beginning of the Tullahoma Campaign in the summer of 1863.  Here we have Hardee's command stand as well as that of Major General Patrick Cleburne and Cleburne's division artillery.

Lt Gen Hardee's corps command stand with three figures on a 40mm round base.

Maj Gen Cleburne's division command base on a 25mm round base.

Cleburne's Division artillery, consisting of Calvert's (Ark.), Douglas' (Tex.), and Semple's (Ala.) Batteries.
[Although depicted armed with rifled guns, they actually had a variety of smoothbore guns.  This will have to be changed!]
The figures are Battle Honors mounted and Old Glory 15s foot figures.  The gun is from Old Glory 15s.

Organized for the "On to Richmond" rules which calls for an artillery stand to represent approximately 12 guns.  For the Confederates, that's three of their 4-gun batteries which was the standard for the Army of Tennessee in 1863 and 1864.
