I'm being sneaky and writing this post on Saturday night then scheduling it to post on Sunday afternoon when I'll be out playing the Imjin game. Hopefully I'll get home in the evening to find lots of lovely comments!
So, my 24th and penultimate entry in this year's Challenge was some more 6mm Union infantry. I'd painted up a large batch of skirmishers a couple of weeks ago but didn't paint the formed infantry at that time as I wanted to get some other things out of the way. So last weekend I started work on the formed infantry.
I got 4 formed regiments painted and when I was gluing them onto their bases I realised that I had more skirmishers than I needed. I upped the number of skirmishers on each base from four to six and still had 24 going spare. Knowing that the deadline was looming and with my 2500 point target in sight I didn't want to waste them. And then it hit me - paint their kepis green (with a red circle on the top), base them in a skirmish line and "Hey presto! Bob's your father's/mother's brother!" I would have a sharpshooter regiment. So, I did that and split them over two 30x60 bases.
And here are the pics:
I'll post my final entry pics on Monday (I might write the post now and schedule it).
