Another Reb brigade finished this weekend. 

Now adding a few more Federal regiments using some of Martin's newly released Western troops.  I will add some more Union command stands with mtd Colonels once the USA Generals packs are released.

Lovely work Kev. Do you still use your magic wash? Your style seems to have evolved and is mire reminiscent of the 'Dallimore' style. Really vibrant colours which are very effective.

Your website is still a huge inspiration for me!

Cheers guys.

Still use magic wash but then highlight over the top now more.

My own collection used to be a little more basic in its painting style with often no highlight, particularly as regards ACW, as this is now my oldest collection.  For my painting service customers I tended to put in more effort.  The last couple of years  I've been painting my own stuff the the same sort of standard.

More new reinforcements painted this week during a period of enforced stay at home to look after a poorly daughter.  She's well now, just in time for Crimbo.  ;D

These feature Martin's recent new sculpts for ACW Federal infantry in the Western theatre, but there's a lot of headswaps too.

Happy Xmas folks.

I really like that "field of blue" look Kev. Makes the army look wonderful. They will "go in" for certain!

Love the ragged Union look and especially the barehead chaps!

That's it.  Brushes downed until Boxing Day.

More reinforcements for my collection.

Dismounted Union cavalry and limbers.  Absolutely loving the new limbers with standing horses Martin.  Four more on the workbench at the moment..

Wow - those limbers are great!

Would look good in a Peter Pig commercial. Or maybe the next 15 Mill ezine...?
