I've been spending some quality time out in the shop - before it gets too cold - assembling and painting some worthy opponents to my pewter Third Michigan Volunteer Infantry (click here) which I completed last year - a nearly twenty year project. I'm hoping my Confederate regiment doesn't take nearly that long.
In the shop with paint still drying.
In the field.
Marching over a bridge.
On the firing line.
Nearly all of these soldiers have been cast from commercial molds, my custom (home made) latex molds are pretty burned up from doing the Third Michigan project.
Acknowledging that these are toy soldiers and not miniatures, I'm painting them in spic and span gray or gray and butternut uniforms, finished bright.
Charging into action (or skedadeling from it!)
179 to go
