I did this unit several years ago. It's a nice break from the light blue/dark blue Union parade. This one doesn't represent any specific unit, rather it is intended to fill in for pretty much any Union zouave regiment.

Figures are all Dixon. Paints are as always a mixed bag, Testors acrylic and Vallejo, mostly.

I do have another Union zouave unit in the "to do" pile - that one might become specifically a New York Fire regiment. On the painting bench at the moment (along with multiple other projects) are some of Wheat's Louisiana Tigers so I can get some Confederate zouaves as well.


  1. Scott, Can you tell me (approximately) the codes of these particular Dixon Zouaves? There are no pics on the website and I am a newbie to ACW anyway, so I don't really know what I am looking for.
    I know that Zouave uniform varied widely but these are the type I am looking for. Thanks in advance!

  2. I thought I still had an old Dixon print catalog that had those line drawings of all the minis around somewhere, but I can't find it. I did, however, find a few unpainted. Looks like the command guy is ACW 15, and some of the advancing are ACW 21. Drummer may be ACW 23. Not sure about the firing, but suspect it could be along in there number wise. Good luck! Hope this helps.
