State of the Union

I have been watching all these Confederate updates and I was getting anxious to post some Union pictures. The process in which I am painting this army has slowed down my ability to post articles mainly because I was concentrating on getting the entire army to the point before putting the finishing touches on them. I was base coating the entire army and 'dipping' them prior to adding highlights and basing them.

Well, I am happy to announce that the base coating and dipping stages are done and I started highlighting stuff this past week. Adding the highlights takes a little bit of time but I am really happy with the progress in just a week. I was able to get almost 30 miniatures done in one week so I am going into the final days with a bunch of confidence that I will finish in time. Enjoy my progress pictures.
