ACW - Confederate Infantry

Manufacturer:  Perry Miniatures (Perry Plastics)
Scale:  28mm

Hello again,

a short time after my last post concerning the Confederate Cavalry I´m happy to present some photos of an unit of Confederate Infantry. 

Again Krisztian painted them up for me and also again the figures just needed to get their bases finished.

And here they are - set into a little scene on our fireplace as you can maybe see the tiles.

I´ve been quite diligent within the last week due to our hobby and there are 42 figures of Perry Zouaves on my painting table which need to be send to Krisztian. I prepared them fixing them on washers, sanding these washers, priming the whole figures and also prepainting the bases.

I noticed that it is was quite hard to sand and paint the washers by drybrushing them after the figures had been fixed on the bases by four without touching the paint of the finished figures. So this time I think that this kind of method could be much more easier.

In the foreground of the pictures showing the prepared minis you can seen two already painted Zouaves of the 5th NewYork Volunteers. The Perry box consists of 42 figures and as I fix them by four on my bases these two guys were left and could not be attached to their unit right now. 

I want Krisztian to paint another two men in the uniform of the 5th NY Volunteers so the base can be completed.

As the 5th NewYork Volunteers had been a force of the Union and our gaming group needs more rebels I decided to let the left 40 men painted as a Confederate Zouave unit - Wheat´s Tiger Rifles.
The last two photos show the supplement of the Perry box which is always a great submission for painting.

I hope that Krisztian has time to paint them as soon as possible. ;)

That´s all for this post. I wish you a lot of fun with our hobby. Don´t let the brushes get dry.
