Longstreet got me painting 15s again

I have very few collections I consider "complete". That is to say I feel I have enough miniatures to put on battle, both sides. I have had my ACW 15mm collection for a couple of decades. They were some of the first historical miniatures I ever did. I've mentioned I've been playing Fire & Fury since it first came out and it is my "go to" rules for ACW, but Longstreet came along and breathed new life into my love for the period.
We have started a campaign using LS quick and lovely campaign system. And LS required a few more bits I didn't have: more dismounted cav (F&F requires 1 out of every 3 or 4 mounted get horse holders vs straight conversion in LS of mtd to dismtd) and a few "markers'.
So, for the first time in years I painted 15mm ACW. A few more dismounted cavalry for my 20th Virgina (the unit great great grand daddy rode with before fighting with Quantrill) and some sharpshooter markers (if I ever get them)
All figs Blue Moon.

Ultimately 28mm would be nice, but just can't jump into that yet.

I won't be going to 28mm for ACW. Too much time invested in the 15mm stuff. Will be glad to play with your toys after "yet"
