Long Drought

The blog has been quiet, but not for lack of painting.  I have been putting in a lot of 4-6 hour days at the painting desk, trying to push through two large commissions before the end of summer.  They are progressing, but not nearly as quickly as I had hoped


I hope to have more content for the blog soon.  In the meantime, here are some 6mm ACW troops I painted in December.  I love these little Baccus strips, and I look forward to some day getting them on the table.

The Redcoats Are Here!

324 British line infantry.  Whew.  I am sure it seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I never want to see another red coat again.  So what's up next?  Two battalions of foot guards.

15mm British Line Infantry

John will have eight line infantry regiments in his army, and I decided to tackle all 324 figures at once.  Here are the base-coated figures, ready for highlights.
