ACW Commission: Confederate Uniforms Basecoated

I wrote in my last post that I hoped to finish basecoating the uniforms in 2-3 days. That was eight days ago, and I just finished basecoating tonight. I try to set aside a good chunk of time to paint each day, but this week was a perfect example of how other things can eat into my painting time.

Instead of averaging 1.5-2.0 hours painting each day, I only averaged a half an hour this week. Still, the Confederate infantry is the toughest part of this commission, and I'm still shaping up to finish it within 4-5 weeks.

  2. Looking good Scott - love your work, especially your Ancients miniatures. I hope mine turn out half as good. Im just getting my blog up and away and hope its as popular as yours is one day. Keep up the great work!

  3. Wow! Love the variety in the uniforms. The units are going to look great!

    Thanks so much for the extra time and love you are lavishing on these. They look great. Truly appreciated.

  4. Looks great, I can't wait to see the next stage. I know what you mean about losing time, my mum has just come home to stay for a month while getting treatment. And my carefully laid out plans for finishing and starting my next few commissions have gone out the window

  5. A job this size would crush my will. You're doing an awesome job keeping at it.
