Redoubt Confederate Casualties and Skirmishers

I'm really enjoying painting these figures.  The sculpts are really nice and the figures are full of character.  I'm also enjoying taking my time and painting these 2-3 at a time with no hard deadline to finish Regiments, etc.

The casualty's musket is a simple conversion.  I bought an extra pack of loose muskets and just super glued it so that it appears to be suspended mid air.

Two more- not much to comment on.

Next up will be a few posts on other Civil War ancestors, and maybe a few Revolutionary War (American War of Independence) ancestors.  If you haven't checked them out, I've added a few pages as well.

"Ragged Reb Wounded and Stragglers"

These are from Redoubt's "Ragged Reb Wounded and Stragglers" set.  They are really nice figures and were a lot of fun to paint.  They are really shiny but when I base them they will get a spray of matte coat.

First post of 2012! Redoubt Casualties

Happy New Year everyone!

Here are some casualty figures from Redoubt.  Hopefully what I'm lacking in quantity I will make up for in quality.  I've put a lot of effort into improving my flesh painting, and it seems to be paying off.  I've also starting using some more washes for ACW.  Games Workshops 'Ogryn Flesh' to be exact.  I've been reading a lot on the Civil War lately, including a lot of actual first hand accounts, and I'm starting to lean towards making them DIRTY!  

Here is another figure for the 146th NY.  I'm slowly but surely finishing the Regiment.

This puts me on pace for 365 posts this year!  Now let's see if I can keep up the pace!
