Day six is over, and . . . I'm done! I finished a day ahead of schedule: 241 figures painted in six days. Tomorrow I think I'll rest.
I was careful to pick out the flesh highlights today, but there isn't a lot of deep relief on these figures to make it easy. I like the overall look of Battle Honors' ACW figures, but Anthony Barton got better over time. The AB Napoleonics I've painted have excellent relief, which makes them much easier to paint.
I don't know if it's the sculpts of 19th Century Miniatures's casting process, but I got a lot of misshapen figures and bent rifles.
Here's our example figure, showing each day's progress.
And here are some samples of the finished figures. I included a lot more Confederate than Union images here because there's a lot more variety in the Confederate uniforms. Finished numbers are roughly equal.
And just in case any of you aren't sure how big a 15mm figure is, here's one next to my thumbnail.
