Civil War: Union Irish Brigade
The infamous Irish regiment from the American Civil War. Uses MMCB cloth accessories, BrickArms firearms(SMLE & Garand), and BrickForge beards.
About this creation
I will post a more detailed description here eventually, but for now this will have to do. For the frock coat pieces and belt, MMCB was kind enough to custom tailor them for me so they were as similar as possible to the uniforms. BrickForge and BrickArms items further enhance the appeal of the figures. I'm pretty happy with the way they look but would like to replace the blue Kepis (hats) with dark blue ones eventually. If you would like to see a comparison with the actual uniforms, check out the YouTube video below the pictures.

Shawn Murphy, They did have repeating rifles(not quite fully or semi automatic) during the civil War, These were not muzzleloaders either! These were breachloading rifles, I THINK that the name is the Smith carbine, I can't think of it off of the top of my head.

I like your minifig, but it would be better if the rifle was a percussion rather than a bolt action rifle.

I Like it!!! Brian, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather was an officer in the 2nd Virginia Regiment, Companies H&I Infantry and Cavalry. This regiment was part of the Stonewall Brigade, and fought at the battle of Cedar Creek.

Those guys are really sweet! Gods and Generals is one of my favorite movies. I, though, am a huge fan of the Stonewall brigade.

Quoting Bridger hey matt, I am a civil war re-enactor, part of the 69th New York State Volunteers, part of the famed Irish Brigade. I am extraordinarily pleased with your Irish Volunteers! They look absolutely outstanding! I have included my e-mail, hoping that there might be a chance that I would be able to purchase a single Irish Volunteer, or at least get directions on how to make my own! Again Matt, very well done! hope to hear from you! happy holidays, Bridger aka Pvt. McNutt 69th NYSV Co. C =p
I apologize for the late reply, but you can buy the Greatcoat from here: http://www.mmcbcapes.servaus.net/design.php?gallery=robes&menuid=robes&submenuid=&designid=1520&oid=138288 You can buy parts for the soldiers from here: www.bricklink.com Hope this helps. I couldn't contact you via e-mail because your e-mail address is nowhere in your message like you said it was. My guess is that MOCpages deleted it for security reasons.

Superbly done! Very good looks and uniforms. The Brickarms look good, but for better historical accuracy, use Lego Winchesters.
