15mm Napoleonic Austrian Artillery

My photography skills are a little rusty, I guess, but here are the latest figures I have finished.  Here we have 23 guns of various sizes with 92 crew.  The castings are a mixture of AB and Old Glory.



These are six 6-pdrs and one howitzer.



Here we have eight larger caliber guns, probably 12-pdr.




The last set consists of eight cavalry guns. Most of these gunners are from AB.


The blog has been quiet, but I have been working like mad to prep and prime a few hundred 40mm miniatures.  I hope to have some pictures of my progress soon!

6mm Union Cavalry and Generals

Here are the last of my 6mm figures, at least until I can get another order in.  These are 45 mounted Union cavalrymen and 15 mounted Union generals.  All figures are from Baccus.







This was a fun little project.  I had planned to paint enough figures to game Shiloh using the "Altar of Freedom" rules.  I should be able to get the fellows interested in a game for the anniversary.  If we like the rules, I think I will place an order for more of these figures.

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!
