In an attempt to revive this brilliant line I'm posting some quick pics of my Brotherhood of Arms collection (and some of my Dog Soldiers). The Brotherhood of Arms is a great collection I would like to see survive. I think Sideshow can offer many more great figures for this line. It would be nice if other collectors out there would share their photos here in this Brotherhood of Arms and Fife & Drum forum.

Thanks a lot Vader Al. I just received a British 64th soldier from a great friend Musketball today! This figure is awesome, I don't know why I passed him up the first time. I'm still on the fence about opening my exclusive George Washington but until then here's some picks of him.

Doomhammer those figures look incredible. I was trying to place the Kenobi sculpt. I knew I had it but I didn't see Ben in there, but now I do. Great Job, and thanks for posting those amazing pictures!

The Kenobie confederate looks very somber. That pose speaks volumes. Thanks

I have always been a bit of a military/war buff (not as much civil war era though) but never really thought to get any figures but I just looked at the military section on the SSC site and there are a couple nice looking figs I can get with the $50 gift card I have so that might be a good place to spend it.

stickman
08-03-2007, 03:33 PM
I still have a $10 and $25 gift card and don't know what to spend it on. Unfortuantely I can't use them on pre-orders. I hope SideShow will do some more CW and Red Coats because these figures are very good. My new Red Coat figure's outfit is very cool. Madden, what are you going to use your gift card on?

Darth Madden
08-03-2007, 03:44 PM
I guess the only 2 military ones (and more in my interest) are Lt. Eddie Rickenbacker and Dress Blues R. Lee Ermey. I always like watching Mail Call so Ermey would be a good one plus he talks but I'm not sure if he's not more "actor" than true military. And the Iron Cross Plane exclusive with Eddie looks cool... we'll see.

stickman
08-04-2007, 03:00 AM
I think that the grin is what held the Lt. Eddie Rickenbacker figure back. Great figure otherwise, and awesome accessory. I own two R. Lee Ermey. Again great figures, however the voice-box is inside the torso of the figure, limiting the articulation. I own original Ermey and the PT version.

At the kind invitation of Stickman I present my meager collection. I was going to post here initially, but was afraid of intruding.

An early pre-Sideshow Washington photo for Independence Day. The Washington is a Hasbro:
http://www.tahoe2.com/rabbit/dolls/1776/1776-01-1a-50.JPG

Posted for this last July 4th. The reason that there are so few Sideshow in this group is...well, Sideshow doesn't make 'em:
http://www.tahoe2.com/rabbit/dolls/1776/hallofheroes-e3f.JPG

This started out as my Irish Brigade, but somewhere changed directions. Col. Chamberlain has been given responsibility for this command:
http://www.tahoe2.com/rabbit/dolls/1776/Glory-21-e2.JPG

This is the final Busby Berkley dance number where, as seen from overhead, they all form a giant Confederate flag and then morph a red circle with a slash through it. That's not an easy number to do when you only have 5 sodjers. Please ignore the backdrop. Right now we're still set up in the alleyway behind Goldman's Delicatessen:

Great Job on those pictures Rabbit, thank you so much for sharing. What building is that? Is that a Power Team prop? Also Where did you get that wagon? I really like what you have done with these figures. Please post more if you have any. - Stickman

Rabbit
08-10-2007, 03:28 PM
The building is indeed a Power Team Command Post. It has two floors and four rooms and the front facade makes a beautiful backdrop to most any setting. I've used it in the current period, WWII and Ancient Geece without it looking too far out of place if you're not too critical.

The buckboard is a Johnny West toy that I bought about 1970-72. It came with horse and harness and somewhere or another I came up with the covered wagon top, but with no supports. The sacrafice of a couple of coat hangers should solve that. A good place to get a steal on something like that is the Goodwill auctions: http://www.shopgoodwill.com/.

Thank you for your kind words, Mr. Stickman.

Nice sodjers, Mr. Kfog41, and such an unusual subject. Are they self-made. I've never seen the like. I even have a Teddy Roosevelt to go up against them although I must admit that he looks more like Bugs Bunny doing an impersonation of him in "Ballot Box Bunny".

I appreciate the praise. I added the brads. snaps, and buttons. But I would have to give my Mother with the help of my wife credit for the actual sewing. I had to help with the research and the patterns measurements. The flaps in the back of the Mexican tunic are totally functional like the real thing. We had also made the red Mexican Uniform for a private and Corporal for the Santa Anna Army during the Alamo Masacre. These customs took many hours of work to get correct! I will send more pictures once I track them down. These items were all sold except for the Mexican in the white Uniform.:cool:

For those fanatic enough to start building their own figures I just want to point out this site:

They sell some very high quality civil war stuff. I think those customs by tiger calico I posted earlier use some of their stuff.

There's always the Tony Barton headsculpts who offer a very charming bunch of ugly guys, Heroheads sells a Wyatt Earp Kurt Russel sculpt that wouldn't look bad under a forage cap, and redplanettoys sells a Sam Elliot just dying to be turned into John Buford.

We got a canon underway, John Wayne looks good if only for the parts, things could be worse. Just need to be a bit creative.

Hey Doomhammer, I am very anxious on buying from Battlgear but a lot of their stuff says coming soon, like the CSA and US buckles with belt. I am also interested in In The Past Toys 61st Virginia Flag and uniform set. Outside of Kepis do you know where I could find some hats like the one that came with the Rebel bugler? Thanks

Rabbit
08-21-2007, 10:01 PM
I used the BattleGear kepis and frock coats for my 54th Massachusetts Regiment. I couldn't help but be impressed with the fine detail of the products. The coats even have real working buttons. I had to use a small needle threader to button up the coats. The buttons seemed like brass, also. The caps, in some cases, were a little tight, but being fabric they could be stretched. I also bought the cavalry kepi for my Virginia cavalryman. Some very good stuff...for a price. Four frock coats at $15 each (Union money not Confederate) set me back a ways. It had to have been a labour of love.

PS- I love those 20th Maine shots, Mr. Stickman. If I may be so bold as to say so they are inspiring.

Rabbit and Doomhammer thanks a bunch. There are so many more interesting characters that SS could do for this line. I don't know why they haven't made Longstreet yet, but some other interesting people would be the following (Taken from http://www.brotherswar.com ):

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b99/Stickly/General_George_E_Pickett.jpg
"On the Fourth—far from a glorious Fourth to us or to any with love for his fellow men—I wrote you just a line of heartbreak. The sacrifice of life on that blood soaked field on the fatal third was too awful for the heralding of victory, even for our victorious foe, who I think, believe as we do, that it decided the fate of our cause. No words can picture the anguish of that roll-call—the breathless waits between the responses. The "Here" of those who, by God's mercy, had miraculously escaped the awful rain of shot and shell was a sob—a gasp—a knell—for the unanswered name of his comrade. There was no tone of thankfulness for having been spared to answer to their names, but rather a toll, and an unvoiced wish that they, too, had been among the missing. Even now I can hear them cheering as I gave the order, "Forward!" I can feel the thrill of their joyous voices as they called out all along the line, "We'll follow you, Marse George. We'll follow you—we'll follow you." Oh, how faithfully they kept their word—following me on—on—to their death, and I, believing in the promised support, led them on—on—on—Oh, God!
...Poor old **** Garnett did not dismount, as did the others of us, and he was killed instantly, falling from his horse. Kemper, desperately wounded, was brought from the field and subsequently, taken prisoner. Dear old Lewis Armistead, God bless him, was mortally wounded at the head of his command after planting the flag of Virginia within the enemy's lines. Seven of my colonels were killed, and one was mortally wounded. Nine of my lieutenant colonels were wounded, and three lieutenant colonels were killed. Only one field officer of my whole command, Colonel Cabell, was unhurt, and the loss of my company officers was in proportion." [3]

and,
Brigadier General Lewis Addison Armistead
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b99/Stickly/200px-Lewis_A._Armistead.jpgMany of the bravest however, like Armistead, did not return. Brigadier General Richard B. Garnett, who lead the Brigade in Armistead's front, would be killed, his body never to be identified. Brigadier General James L. Kemper on his front right, would receive an agonizing wound as a minie ball ricocheted through his body. Still, Armistead lead his men forward. As he crossed over the low stone wall, he placed his hand on one of the Federal guns of Lieutenant Alonzo Cushing's Battery. As suddenly as he had seemingly grasped the throat of one of the Union cannons guilty of savaging his men as they closed, he was then shot down.

Suffering multiple wounds, the General slumped to the ground. He was later carried off to the Union's 11th Corps field hospital on the Spangler Farm east of General Meade's Headquarters. Confederate Brigadier General Louis Addison Armistead, a former United States Army officer and friend of Union Major General Winfield S. Han**** whose troops this day he had challenged, would die two days later. Like their General, after an awesome display of discipline and courage, most of Armistead's Virginians would earn for their efforts either death, wounds, or capture. The charge, although bravely executed, was repulsed with severe loss. (taken from http://www.brotherswar.com)

Hi Stickman. I wish that I had blown up pictures of the Artillery and wagons. I will need to get in :cool:contact with the owner of them to get that info. The guy made everything from scratch including the wagons. He had so many civil war items that he was going to sell me everything for over $20.000 dollars. Of course I did not have that kind of money, so I would buy his customs one at a time on ebay. I have to go to my Mothers today, but will pop in and out to check things out. Thanks, Kent.

I'm looking to start building up my Union Troops soon. I just got the two new Navy outfits from BGT and am really impressed with the quality. Everything is fully functional and in proper scale. I am also working with a Canadian couple that make awesome 1:6 gear of this era. Anyone hear of Richard & Rhonda @ R&R Customs. Very nice people and the craftsmanship is top notch. I turned Luke from flag bearer to Drummer boy ( Not pictured.) I can post a picture if anyone is interested. So if anyone has BOA, or bearded figures that they want to unload please PM me. Long live the Brotherhood!

Hi Stickman! Those customs are great! I have many like them, since I have been dealing with Auggie Romero for abour 15 years now. I even have some of His original hand made Civil War items. I will list them soon.:whip

I have dealt with Richard from Richard & Rhonda @ R&R Customs. I have traded, bought, and sold items to him in the past. I most recently sold four sets of Soldiers of the World British Redcoats and American Patriots to him last November. I really like his custom period hats and drums.:monkey5

Thank You Saya, Doomhammer, and KFOG

I will post Drummer boy Luke soon, I have an event tonight to film, so I'm a little busy.


Kfog - I got A CSA Drum, 2 straw Hats, and a Bread box from R&R recently. Great people. Actual tiny straw and bread in the box, just awesome, I'll show some pics of that stuff too, later.


I have Rhonda currently making me 4 Derby hats, and Richard making me Jackson's desk, 1 Federal drum, 1 Virginia Drum, 1 Ammo crate, antoher Bread box, 1 Cannon ammo box, 1 Camp chair, 1 candle box, and a few other items. Their work is also top notch. Between BGT and R&R we're talking museum quality all the way. Add a SS headsculpt to the mix and you really have something that stands out.

BGT has new sets coming. Have you been to Auggie's site lately. The new Johny Reb set looks great, he's next on my list. I can't wait for some more Yankee sets. I just got the sailors (very cool) and a couple USMC figures. All I need now is a way to get his siege mortar to make a Naval scene. Vicksburg anyone? :whip

I agree! They both have museum quality pieces! I really love the hats and drums that they make. I always wanted to make a Louisiana Tiger with the pinstripe pants and straw hat. I have a book that pictures one that I loved. Auggies site is soaring. I could show you his old magazine of when He first got started. I also have some One of a kind Kepis that were handmade by a older gentleman from Conneticutt. I have tried to reach him for three years now with no luck. I would guess that He must have passed on. I could tell that He was up there in age. He is the one that had made those custom cannons and Limbers that I put pictures up of. I will getcha some pictures soon. Later, Kent.:D

Hey Sticks! These are some great pictures! I saw one that you posted on Facebook. The figures shown are simple kitbashed Sideshow figures that would be easy to do. I am going through orientation for a job right now and pending my background check coming back all right, I will actually be back working. This means that I can get back into my own place and be able to focus on my hobbies because it is easier to spread things out, put them together, and post more pictures.:banana

Yeah but SS never released any Artillery uniforms for either side, yet they continue to make cannons?

Here are some of my Marines.

It'd be cool if SSC revisited the Civil War... some of the older stuff looked a little farby (no offense, anyone!)... but they're churning out much nicer stuff now a days. I've always wanted one of the cannons, but like you said - there are no gunners!

stickman
07-30-2009, 09:48 AM
You're right AngryEwok, I'm not sure why they abandoned the line either, but every time I see a canon the gunners they use are not from the original line i.e. They use the Star Wars Endor trooper in Union blue, and none of those red Reb uniforms pictured above were ever released.

How can they not love this! What great pictures Adam! Here are a couple pics for you! The real wool butternut trousers are hand made that are on the Dog soldiers Black figure, The other black figure is a Will Smith sculpt on an earlier Hot Toys Body. The white sculpt is from Major Midnight and is on a dml body.

Well to be honest Kfog, they aren't really what I'm looking for. I would prefer bearded figures or any loose BOA figure you may have. The one on the far right would kinda work, I love his slouch hat. You're right about the Will Smith figure standing very tall. Do you have anything else? I want my civil war guys looking haggard, battle worn, hungry, etc. The best thing about SS figures are the head sculpts.

Would you be willing to trade the African American on the far right in your first post,
and sub out the guy in the middle in your second post?

Does that make sense? (From left to right)
Guy 3 (first picture)
Guy 1 & 3 (second picture)

Let me know, If you're willing to part with the hats let me know, if not I have 4 Derby's coming from R&R soon, Richard emailed and said my order shipped. I can't wait. Now I need to make a Union Drummer boy. Guy 3 in second photo will be a Union or Confederate sailor. What do you think?

At what price? Ebay is ridiculous although you can still find a good deal if you're patient.

08-08-2010, 07:17 PM
Seems like they were like $40 or $50 bucks. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the store, but it had a small museum in it. Great people, I love that place. Been trying to talk my wife into moving there when I retire. Love the Civil War and anything history.

Oh, If you are looking for figures I have two I am trying to get rid of. Col. Chamberlain and JEB Stuart. Shoot me a PM if intrested..
