I've been making slow but steady progress on the Reb cavalry and commanders. I've still got a lot of work to do though, so I suspect that these won't be finished in time to submit this weekend. Unless tomorrow night's session is very productive of course, but it would be cutting things very fine indeed.
Anyway, here are some pics of the current WIP state of them:
The only variable colour thing left to do on them is the hats (and generals' hair), so that will make things a lot easier. Once I've finished this post, I'll probably do the boots/shoes and maybe the flesh if there's time before I go to bed.
the one bit of detailing I'm not looking forward to is painting the facings and the officers' (possibly just the generals' and staff's) gold braid on the sleeves. I might separate those sticks out and finish them next week, leaving me free to focus on the cavalry.
