Here are the latest figures off the painting table, and yes, they did take a long time!
I painted my Blue Moon zouaves as the 146th New York, with their distinctive sky blue dress.
I deliberately painted the sky blue in a lighter color than it was in life. It's close, but a little brighter to help them jump off the table.
The Blue Moon zouaves come in four poses, and this is just enough variety to keep the unit from looking too disciplined.
Flags are from GMB. I cut away the telephone pole flag staffs that came on the figures, drilled out the color bearers' hands, and inserted brass wire.
I painted twelve bases, which is a good unit size for Regimental Fire and Fury, representing 480 men.
The 146th New York fought in every one of the Army of the Potomac's battles from Fredericksburg through the end of the war.
