I spent some time yesterday evening painting the first coat on the bases for the Union infantry and gun crews. This evening I will repeat the process for the Confederates and then will tackle the cavalry. I am using a Humbrol satin enamel (as per how the original painter tackles his models) green (number 131) and am wondering if going overall satin for the figures and bases would be the way to go. It means the models would be shiny but not excessively so. Something to think about for when they are ready.
The models are not quite Kurz and Allison in respect of uniforms but they still have that simple and very effective look about them.
I am hoping to have then ready over the coming weekend and will of course be posting pictures of them when they are finished.
