15mm ACW project SHILOH Order of Battle painting completed

 The Confederate half of the OOB for Shiloh 1862 is now completed.

I actually finished the painting in May, meaning I managed two divisions in the one month.

This has been a real labor, with the insert of the Gettysburg game last year, I ended up doing more commanders and Union guns, then needed to get more guns for the Confederate side here ... I'll need to do up the labels and lay out the forces for a final check-in for having the troops.

As it appears that a Napoleon's Battles game will be done this summer, it is unknown if I will get in a Shiloh game with a group this year or not.

So now I'll need to do much more cleaning in the game space in order to lay out the forces and confirm I have the minimum for Shiloh.

Time also to do some parade ground photos of the collection to date.

Then ... start looking at Gettysburg ...
