The two infantry regiments are almost done. I decided last night to paint up the skirmisher strips to the same stage as the line infantry, then finish painting them all together. Tonight I've got them almost completely done - I just need to touch up a bit of flesh and do the gold metalwork. Once I got them finished, I decided to start on another 8 strips of artillery crew figures - I've got all the guns painted, so I thought I might as well do all the union crews and submit them in one fell swoop. I'll be finishing them tomorrow and varnishing them alongside the infantry. If I have time, I'll get them glued onto their final bases, ready for adding the texture on Friday.
