Louisiana Tigers

 These will be my final full sized Confederate unit for Longstreet.  I will be building some smaller Confederate units but more are not needed at this point.
 The Louisiana Tigers, also called the Tiger Rifles or Tiger Zouaves are one of those colorful early war units.
 They had quite  a battle field reputation fighting fellow Irishmen from the Union Irish Brigade at Bull Run.
 Off the battle field they were a constant source of discipline problems not surprising as most of them were wharf rats from a city like New Orleans.
This was a fun though complicated unit to paint they have already seen action and have done quite well thus far.
