ACW 15mm forces expand for Shiloh

 Started on March 10, by March 21 all the painting was done and the flocking was finished on the 23 of March.

base coat was black
then a dark brown coat
then a 'light brown' (almost white) drybrush
then a color coat (as seen here)

ink layer (fresh and wet still)

base color layer
white on the horses for A.S. Johnston

mid-tones and some details

highlights & metallic parts

off the painting sticks and onto bases

flocking completed

All of these troops are now filed into a Confederate storage space and three brigades of foot and one brigade of horse have been assembled and as I write this, they are at the inked stage.

Moving along on the 15mm ACW project and I can see the light of a Shiloh battlefield coming ... maybe this year?
