I've also been filling out my 6mm ACW armies and finished 10 regiments of Union Infantry and 2 Regiments of Calvary. Each regiment is based on a 60mm x 30mm base and has 28 figures. I would equate painting a 28 6mm figures to painting 2 28mm Napoleonic figures.
I should apologize for the limited posts, but we've been busy at home over the past few weeks. My wife hosted a reception for her women dental students last weekend which required a lot of prep work. I had to attend to serve the food and play the dutiful husband. As you can see from the picture below, it was tough duty, but someone had to do it. My wife (Mary Beth) is on the far right of the first row.

Luckily for his future customers, Barb is also involved in the latest enterprise.
The new venture's name is "Architects of War" and they have a draft blog started where you can see some of the initial products - the defensive works look fantastic. Take a look:
