6mm ACW Union Infantry - Eight Bases
These are the first 6mm figures I've painted for about 3 years. I'd forgotten what it was like painting such teeny tiny shininess. It wasn't that bad.
I actually had four of these bases so, so close to being finished for last Saturday but didn't quite make it in time. So, you're getting them this week along with another four bases I painted up alongside the NSL power armour.
The two batches were painted and based slightly differently, but not so differently that you'd notice particularly. When I last [painted some 6mm ACW I was using Revell Aqua Colour paints, but have since switched to Vallejo, so I needed to find the most appropriate colours to use.
The First Batch:
I actually used three different lots of static grass (summer, meadow and moorland grass) on these to give some variety as with 6mm good basing helps with the overall look of the units.
The Second Batch:
This will teach me to look at the bases before taking photos. It looks as though I must have splodged a bit of the paint I was dry-brushing with onto the skirmishers. That will need to be touched up at some point.
The figures are all from Baccus, as are the flags. I did go over the edges with a gold pen to disguise the white of the paper.
So, eight bases of 28 figures in 6mm at 0.5 points each should be 112 points to add to my tally.
Hmm, can I very quickly paint up a 28mm foot figure to take my weekly total over 200 points?
