With a Rebel Yell

The start of another series of entires for the blog picturing the progress of a 15mm Confederate States of America army for both Battle Cry and Fire and Fury.

This will included a mixture of second hand figures rebased and washed in Agrax Earth Shade before matt varnishing and a number of newly painted and based figures to boost the numbers. Those figures pictured below have been specifically painted for this.



This is a new period and style of painting which is proving at present to be quite slow. The figures are undercoated in light grey, base colours added then washed in Agrax Earth to provide shading before matt varnishing. Overall the figures look good and the effect when more are completed will be more powerful than that of the four stands pictured here.


There will be more pictures from this period shortly showing some of the second hand figures rebased and completed for use.

Cheers for now

Very nice ACW figs, Ross. A period I've not gotten into, but can see the appeal - particularly with figs like these.
