Confederate limber


As I'm getting near the end of the first and biggest part of the ACW project the laziness kicks in.
I needed to finish this model quickly so I took the most simple solution and got rid of two horses and a rider. Now I want to concentrate on some more regiments before another period takes over my main interest. The fact that I'm finalizing an order of mini's for a new project (why do you always start a new project with the only mini's you don't own) does not help with the focus unfortunately. It will be a real challenge to get the two Brigades done over the next three months or so but so far I'm still enjoying the painting and confident I can make it.
The limber is from Perry miniatures and more pictures can be found in the ACW Gallery.

  2. Really nice work, Mike. The Perry sculpts are top notch and your painting suits them well.

    Let me know if you get tired of ACW and decide to give away all your ACW miniatures...

    Just kidding, keep up the good work, it really is inspirational stuff.

  5. Absolutely great, Mike. I love the muted colours and the basing, and the overall "feel" of the model. We all get distracted when working on a project, but keep on going with the ACW stuff as they really are looking very special.

  11. Great painting, but you've put the horses round the wrong way - the ones with the heavier harness should be to the rear.
