Confederates (15mm)

Continuing on with my 15 ACW revamp project. Well I know I said I'll first finish showing all the union I have finished, but decided I would prefer to mix it up a bit and will be showing both.

When painting confederates I really like to to dive into the ragged mixed uniform look and give quite a bit a variety. However this does come at cost in terms of painting time and at least doubles it if not more when compared to painting union. However since I trade off back and forth between the two sides it gives me chance to have a break between them. The colours used are a mix of Foundry the first unit in front and Howard Hues the back two. The Foundry are darker shades and the Howard Hues are a bit brighter mixed with strong tone washes. I like them both and will mix them up in all my units. Flags are from the excellent GMB designs.

Lots more on the way soon!

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  2. Painting Confederates does take more time than painting their Federal counterparts but your rag-tag results are well worth the extra effort.

    Well done!

  5. I think you've really succeeded in recreating that ragged "Rebel" look. I can almost hear the Rebel Yell ring out as these proud sons of the South storm forward!
