146th New York work-in-process 2

I apologize for the lack of posts as of late. The summer has been busy and we just got back from vacation in Tennessee (pictures of the Nashville National Military cemetery, Franklin battlefield, McGavock Confederate cemetery, Stones River battlefield, and Stones River national cemetery will be posted soon!)

Over the past month or so I have managed to paint a humble group of 11 zouaves... I am hoping to finish the rest of them this month. 



If you ever get a chance to visit Franklin Tennessee I highly recommend taking it. The better half even loved it as the battlefield is not too much of a hike, and there are a lot of shops and restaurants to spend money... er to enjoy. But more on Franklin later...

Thanks guys for the compliments. Coming from such fine painters it means a lot.

@Phil, I highly recommend S&S, they're so full of character and a lot of fun to paint!

Hi Josiah, yes indeed I do have lots and lots of Sash and Saber miniatures, planning on buying more. I will buy the Zouaves as well, thanks to you :o)

I also have Old glory 2nd edition ACW minis and they fit/mix well with the S&S minis.
cheers.
