From IanW: 6mm ACW Confederate Infantry (168 points)


From IanW:
I hope to get one more submission after this one done but the wind is against me at the moment LOL
Here we have what was supposed to be some quick points that ended up taking as long as the Prussians before them did. I wanted them to look like they have had a long campaign.
The Figures were given to me as part payment for painting up the WSS I finished recently and will be going on e-bay at some point, probably once the cavalry and guns are finished.
Baccus again both figures and flags, 12 bases of 24 infantry and 6 bases of 6 skirmishers for a total of 324 figures. I'm happy with the end product and again the Baccus flags really were great to work with making folding them for the wind effect a lot easier. It adds a little to the time taken but really finishes off the bases. What's more once the PVA dries the flags are really robust.

Not sure how well the pictures show this off but not only are the hats and blanket rolls of different colours but the odd pair of trousers are brown instead of the standard pale blue. ACW is not a period I really want to wargame but they sure are fun to paint.
Great work Ian! I'm constantly amazed at how fast you can churn these out and at such a high quality. Lovely stuff.

This Confederate division with their defiant colours will give Ian 168 points. Lets see if he can push-on to achieve his second Challenge target before the bell tolls...

  1. More wonderful output from you Ian. Fingers crossed for some more before the end of the Challenge, even if it means you beat me! :)
