My recent game of Sharp Practice caused me to think about my ACW collections, my 28mm Union troops are desperately in need of skirmishers and my 6mm Confederates lurked nearby mocking me for being unfinished since 2010!
Whilst reviewing old blog posts I found my unboxing post and my first few units. These figures had caused me a few problems, I've based the early regiments twice as I focused on to unit bases and didn't like painting off the black undercoat. Whilst off recently I took the plunge and pulled out the part painted strips and cracked on.
Once I had some momentum up it ceased being a chore and started planning future additions, more of everything!
It's ready for a game now;
18 infantry regiments
4 combined skirmishers bases
2 cavalry squadrons
2 dismounted cavalry squadrons with horse holders
4 cannon w/ 2 limbers
5 brigade commanders
3 division commanders
1 corps commander or CinC
