American Civil War - a few test shots

Posted by PhilC on 04 Oct 2019, 19:48

Hi everyone! I know that we are in Orctober and that I promised to paint a horde of Orcs... But I am also in the mood to paint a large variety of minis. For the first time in my life, I have painted some Union and Confederate foot soldiers. It's Paul's fault :-D His ACW regiments were too nice not to be copied.

So, pictures:

What do you think ? Is it a welcome break for those who are fed up with Fantasy figures ? :mrgreen:

Bonjour,
I think it's great level of painting. You should definitely carry on and paint more of them

You clearly were meant to paint civil war figures as they look very nice indeed. I think you paint more... lots more!

Those are really fantastic painted ACW figures. Your use of a variety of colors gives a very pleasing result. Keep doing those...
