The Unofficial Painting Guide to Gnome America

After the American Uncivil War of 1836 and the Great 19th Century Expansion of Gnome America, I figured it would be a good idea to compile these new countries plus what figures and color schemes to use.

Rule 0 of the Gazetteer:  Regardless of the ethnicity of the country, Swiss gnomes are acceptable "default" figures for militia units.  Consider the Swiss pointed hat as a culturally acceptable fashion the whole world over. 

Any suggestions and revisions are welcome.  Please let me know!

Northerners (Mercantile Union)
Figures: Northern Infantry and Cavalry
Color Scheme: Any American (Union) theme stretching out to the conclusion of the Indian Wars

Southerners (Confederate Sovereign States)
Figures: Southern Infantry and Cavalry
Color Scheme: Any Confederate theme.
The Republic of Furmont
Figures:    Swiss Gnomes and British Marines
Color Scheme:  Any combination of green, black, and brown. 

Figures:   Organized gnome units should be Swiss.  Militia and resistance should be Southerners.
Color Scheme:  Organized are red coat and black hat.  Sailors and Marines: Navy Blue Coats, bright yellow boots

Figures:  Swiss Gnomes, British Marines, French Infantry, and Pirates
Color Scheme:  Any uniform colors of the French Army from 1750-1914.
