I have been working on the 560 figures since mid-October. I don't know why, but 6mm has been tough for me to paint. Maybe if I skipped highlighting, they would go faster. The Baccus miniatures are very nice, and they look the part once painted. These are their western Union infantry packs.
I still have five cavalry brigades and five generals with staff to paint. Then I can call this project done ... for now. I will have enough troops painted to game Shiloh, which was my initial goal. I will have to more than double these initial forces to be able to play any out battle.
