54th Massachusetts

Since there is a chance John will get some US Colored troops through the campaign cards I have been working hard on these guys the 54th Massachusetts Volunteers.  I still need officers... I am promised those will arrive "soon" actually I was promised they would ship last week but that is a subject for another blog.
As you can see I have decided to base them to suggest they are moving across a beach as they did before assaulting Battery Wagner .
The sand is from Hampton Beach in New Hampshire and the tufts of grass are from Army Painter I think they look admirably like dried tufts of dune sand.
Blanket rolls are a one of the few places I get to be creative on Union Uniforms... enjoy.
