thought I'd share this:
I have been wanting to do this project since I was 15 years old and I have finally been able to get it started.
This will most likely take me about 12 months to complete. I am in NO RUSH to get it done as I'll be doing alot of research before I start painting I also want to get all of the flags in for each regiment before painting starts. And I still need to add more stuff to the collection like:
Dismounted Confederate troops
Limbers for both Confederate and Union Artillery
Cassion with riders for both Confederate and Union Artillery
GS wagon and rider for both Confederate and Union Armies.
Here are some early pics:
The swag of metal:
210 bases [40mm x 20mm]:Here are some updated pics of my ACW project:
V Corps 1st Division:
Rifled Cannon Brigade:
Here are the Napoleon Cannons for the Union Army:
While I was waiting for the Cannons to dry I made these up:
here is the first of the Confederate Army:
I have the Confederate Cavalry almost done and a Brigade of Confederate Smoothbore Cannons that is nearing the end of the painting stage and will soon follow the Cavalry into dry brushing and inking.
Once they are done I am going to start the next Confederate Brigade but take my time and show how I have done it. Mordheimer asked me to do the Tutorial [on the Deathsquad forum board]
As I paint up the units I'll update this thread when I do the DS one.
