40mm ACW Gun and Generals

Here are the rest of my first batch of 40mm ACW.  These figures will go out in tomorrow's mail!





I enjoyed painting this scale much more than I thought I would.  I took an approach very similar to that I use for 28mm figures.  These larger figures are less forgiving, but they look spectacular!

40mm ACW Union Infantry Done ... for Now

Usually I don't apply a third shade to 28mm figures, but these 40mm figures needed something a little extra.  This final highlight was applied VERY sparingly, and it really helps the figures to pop.



That's as far as I can take these figures until I get the flags and bases from my client.  It took eight days to get them this far.

40mm ACW Union Infantry First Highlights Done

Today I finished up the highlights on these figures.  I could call these done now, but I'm going to add a sparing ultra highlight to help these really pop!

40mm ACW Union Infantry First Highlights

Yesterday I put on the first set of highlights.  Today I'll try to finish up the flesh, blanket rolls, and rifle slings.

40mm ACW Union Infantry Block Painting

It took most of Friday and Monday, but I was able to finish the blocked in base coat on these 27 figures.  Now for the highlights!
