5th New York Volunteer Infantry (Duryée’s Zouaves) – Perry Miniatures

I am betting everyone has this unit in their Union army, or are at least planning on having it.  I have another Zouave unit to be painted – awaiting some command sprues from Perry and a fellow wargamer has kindly sent me the five or six extra minis I need to crank this unit up to 25 figures.

These particular Perry miniatures have the option of charging/advancing or right shoulder shift. I preferred the latter  and am pleased with the look.   These guys were actually easy to paint. The detail is well molded and easy to follow. One thing – I did not have any yellow paint so did their tassles and legging thingies in a yellowish-brown instead. I figure that they faded on campaign.  Anyway, without further ado….
