It took a month, but I was able to finish these 448 figures. We have here sixteen brigades of Confederates, enough to play my Shiloh scenario.
I painted these in two tones, shade and highlight. The uniforms are a mixture of greys and butternuts.
Here is the complete Confederate army!

This past Saturday, the fellows joined me for another game of "To the Strongest!" Once again, we tackled the battle of Chaeronea. In the first game, Jon's Greeks won a squeaker against Kevin's Macedonians. In the second game, my brother Craig and I took the Greeks, and Jon and Kevin teamed up as the Macedonians. It was another closely fought Greek victory!
After lunch, Jon and I broke out the old Avalon Hill "Squad Leader" and played the first scenario. My 10 year old son and I have been learning the game together. Jon was a little rusty on the rules, but I think he had fun!
While Jon and I got our fix of retro gaming, Kevin had a chance to peruse my collection of "The General."
I HAVE been painting, but I haven't been finishing many projects this month. Hopefully I can post some pictures of new figures soon!
