CAS Dismounted Cavalry troopers

Dismounted Confederate cavalry for Longstreet
These are Bluemoon figures and are some of their best sculptures for their Civil War line.
The only problem is packaging you get 15  troopers in one pack and 16 command figures in the other pack so it's an awkward number when you need 8 strands per unit for Longstreet.
I solved this by taking 8 strands of infantry and mixing them in together they give me enough for two dismounted cavalry units.
I am not sure I like the number of men armed with pistols but the do look good.
I used South Carolina colors many associated with Hampton's Legion.
The shotgun armed troopers are among my favourite for this line.



Mixed with  infantry to make two full units.
