Muddy Puddles

After what seems an eternity I have been able to pick up a paintbrush and finally finish the Confederate infantry. As mentioned many times before these are the fantastic 20mm figures from the RSM 95 range.

They are destined for a diorama depicting the attack on the "Mule Shoe" at Spotsylvania. A savage assault across boggy ground - hence the "puddles".

 Must say I am quite impressed by the effect and when I eventually get started on my Inkerman collection I plan to do similar. 

These fellows will be posted out to their new owner tomorrow leaving me a little time to finish my next (British) Peninsular War Regiment before I get cracking on the cavalry and artillery support for these fellows.

This Looks Really Good...

1864...a Danish made for TV series coming out in October 2014 covering the Second Schleswig Holstein War. Apparently will be shown on BBC4. Can't wait!

More 20mm ACW - A Work in Progress

It has been a while since my last post, so here is the sum total of over a months painting. Forty Confederates from the RSM95 20mm range. I have another 18 infantry to paint and then I will be sending them off to their new owner, followed later by some cavalry and guns. After that my painting time is my own.

Currently in the queue are my own ACW (in 10mm), Napoleonic (now expanded to include the Hundred Days Campaign), WW1 Germans and British plus a fledgling Franco Prussian War collection.

All I need is a bit of spare time!
