Longstreet WiP

Union Infantry and cavalry
I am slowly getting to grips with painting 10mm figures. It is a bit of a shock to the system having to paint figures so small but so far it has great fun. I have about 200 nails which are being used to hold the figure during painting. This is a neat trick that will feedback into my FOW painting in future.
It is also a bit daunting to go for a game system that does not have it own figure range compared to 40K, Fow, Bolt Action, etc. t is dauting and liberting at the same time. I have opted to base my force on 4x4cm base with space at the back to add labels if/when I want to start identifying the regiments better.

The great thing about playing a game that the makers don't sell models for is it will be better balanced as their not looking to push the newest stuff.

it is pretty cool. Osprey seem to be pumping out a good few stand alone rules sets some seem pretty interesting.
