Local Christchurch wargamer Paul "Jacko" Jackson has been painting up a few more Union troops to help the cause. There are more to come from Paul and you can check on his progress on his blog http://paintinglittlesoldiers.blogspot.co.nz/.
Very nice work here Paul.
This is starting to look rather one-sided. Where are all the Rebels?????
Just a couple of guns along with their crews that I painted up a year or so ago. As I am doing Confederate troops for the Gettysburg game these will be the only Union artillery that I will do. My next lot of guns will be Rebel ones.
These guys are from Foundry .
Just over 200 days to go!!!!
I know there are a lot more troops that are painted up and going to be at this game. Please let me know you totals for the points! and photos too if possible.
Nick Garden has emailed some more to me tonight and these will be posted soon.
I started putting the brush to work last night and have decided to do all the figures i have in their base coats and do all there skin that's nearly 300 figures, i have a batch of about 100 that i m working on at work in my lunch times, It's going to take a while but at least i'm underway, i have about 80 ready to base and about 60 still to glue up. they should be ready to undercoat on the weekend so here's a couple of pic's of the progress, I've done the skin the first of three layers of dark blue and two layers of the lighter blue still haven't decided on the third highlight yet so if you have a suggestion let me know.
I've added a pic of some Sash and Sabers that i did about a month ago i had quite a few comments on the pants not being light enough
I've been coordinating and organising a rather large order from Perry Miniatures on behalf of six other guys. The Perry's were nice enough to come to the party and so we got a pretty handy discount. Part of the order arrived last week (see Kent's blog) and the rest turned up today. This lot should keep the guys busy for a while. As you can see, they are taking this Gettysburg project pretty seriously!
