These were my 16th entry in this year's Challenge - four bases of infantry to add to the eight already painted and a modest artillery park. Just the twelve bases of smoothbores and four of Parrott rifled guns.
Let's start with the artillery:
Getting close up on the smoothbores...
...and the Parrott rifles
And now for the infantry. My previous batches were painted up four bases (112 figures) at a time. That was actually a bit stressful - after painting the same tiny detail 56 or so times my brain (and bum) would start to feel numb.
This time I painted them up two bases at a time. It was much easier for me and from comments when Curt posted them, it may have helped with the standard of painting. I'd also revised the order in which I paint different colours to reduce the need for touching up.
This lot are probably the last of the 6mm ACW that I'll be painting during the Challenge. I've got a lot of other bits to paint up over the next 3 weeks, but if I have time before the end I might do some more.
There may be another post tonight - it will depend on how far I get with what I'm working on.
