same fig's painted as Union, they are smaller than his usual figs (marked SA, South Africa or Harlem), but larger than the 20mm combat troops he did back in Sweden, also the sculpting is very like his?

I'll try to dig mine out and post them on my blog for a comparison (you'll be welcome to the image), I'm doing 'S' at the moment!!

Sorry - cut the start of my message off somehow?

I said...I think this figure may be by Holgar Ericsson, I have a Confedderate campfire with an SAE tray, complete (I think?) and a couple of the same fig's painted as Union,.....

Thanks Hugh, had worked out you meant Holger Ericsson. I've been sent some pictures of the SAE ACW figures from their boxed set, and they are crude by comparison - can exchange these with you if you like

Yes, they are a lot cruder in the flesh! Though I will post them now that I have dug them out. They were Union not Confederate...
