Before posting out the eight regiments I sold on -bay I was able to finish up the other eight for a group shot. I think the second lot in fact are better that the first lot and my confidence with the flags has grown to a point I was really comfortable and dare I say it enjoyed the process.
That's 384 figures painted in two long painting sessions plus basing time that is done over a couple of days. All in all a rather fast output. Napoleonic's take a fair bit longer as they are more involved put then again I like the result more so it's worth the extra time. At least now I know I could paint up a ACW force if required to do so.
Well that's the lot till next year. The proceeds from the two e-bay sales are being put to the kids Christmas presents so I got a bit extra buzz from painting them up. The last two brigades are on e-bay as I type and I expect them to go again as both have a fair few watchers.
Here is the third group of four units again showing the front and back of the uniforms. These are easy to do as I only had the one strap to paint and that was the water canteen.
Number four all with colours flying. I hope these get some play from who ever buys them, I wonder if they will keep them bases as I have done them or change to their own style?
Here is a close up of one of the fourth divisions units. Shame the sun bleaches the figures a bit but you get the idea. Again this is the system that Dr Mike uses with more detail added which adds more time to the whole process but is well worth it in my mind.
