Fifty Shades of Grey

I managed to finish the first rebel regiment today and thought I would share it. It is kind of small, but painting smaller units helps to keep me motivated.

I went for a ragged and nonuniform look for this regiment which adds to the fun of painting confederate forces I think.

They are not meant to represent any specific unit as I prefer to keep my figures more or less generic so I can use them in any battle I wish. I do plan to paint up some tiger zouaves though at some point in the future.

The miniatures are Peter Pig and the flag is GMB. They are based for Regimental Fire & Fury.

  2. Good job, Jonas. My own Peter Pig units are also based 3 figures per base and, if I say so myself, are well painted and look good - but yours are technically better. Bravo! As I write my daughter tells me March 2013 (according to one source - another suggests February) is the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the 54th Massachusetts (of the film 'Glory') Union regiment.

  3. They look top-notch. The rag-tag feel of the regiment is exquisite and the brush work and attention to detail is stunning. Well done!

    1. Hi Justin, I use Vallejo Model Colors primarily. I try to find combinations of colors that work well together like for example: 962 Flat Blue and 901 Pastel Blue for the trousers.
