This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
For a change of pace, I decided to paint up a Union regiment. 28mm Perry plastics but from their original box set. While these figures are fine one can really see the skill improvement both the Perry's and their caster, Renedra, have gained over the past few years of producing other plastic sets.
This unit was meant to have more of a Western theatre feel to it (hence no kepi's).
With the completion of this unit, I'm close to be doing model wise for Historicon with 15-16 infantry regiments, 2 cavalry regiments and 6-8 artillery batteries per side. I still need to add in a few more units but will shift my focus to terrain now that the painting challenge is drawing to an end.
