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.

Confederate General

Yesterday I finished yet another confederate general. I decided that I would kick off my brigade of rebels with the leader himself.

I spent a lot of time looking at images of horses on the Internet for two reasons. First of all I wanted to get the muscles right, but it was equally important to me that the paint job would represent a breed of horse that actually existed in the late 19th century. In this case a Bay.

The Peter Pig miniature was a joy to paint and I'm really starting to like cavalry miniatures where the rider is part of the casting.
