The Old Dominion State

I've been so busy painting I have had no time to setup my photo booth and take some proper pictures.  But work on the boys of Virginia has continued with two more infantry regiments and an artillery piece completed. The cavalry is half done (horses finished, now for the riders) and then I'll be moving on to the command stands, the final infantry regiment, dismounted cavalry and some disruption markers probably in that order. I've got 4 week left so that is plenty of time, right?


First up are the men of the 47th Virginians
 

 My third regiment is the 55th Virginians. This regiment was made from the new Perry plastic confederates box set.



I also completed my one gun for my contribution to the confederate cause.
 
All in all I'm happy with the product so far even though I would much rather have been further along at this stage.  Although this has been a marathon painting project for me, I'm very excited with the results.  Plus, it has shown me that, given the incentive, I can get a lot done.  Who knows, maybe this will get me back to painting some larger army projects for a change.

I'll leave you with a little period music for inspiration:
