I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

We Generals Three (ACW Project - Part 1) & Kingforce Completed!

Bit of a quick aside to keep from burning out on painting desert colouring, here the three miniatures that will represent my generals for my 15mm ACW Confederate army.

I have no idea who produces them or if they were even supposed to be Confederate Generals int he first place (As opposed to Union), but they are full of character and were fun to paint. 

These are 15mm on 1" circular bases per the Regimental Fire and Fury rules.

Think this chap is supposed to be regarding his map.

As you can see, I just couldn't get the rider/saddle to sit flush on this horse.

Tried to show a "Dapple-Grey" effect on the horse's rump.

My least favourite of the three and obviously an inferior sculpt, but damn he sports a nice moustache!

This will be my Cavalry commander, so he gets the light blue trousers.

My fav of the three. Love his dashing facial hair and sash (Looks messy here, but I cleaned up the red since.)

Tried to make this horse look like a Palomino.

Also got the last of the KingForce Chuchills done! Commander is painted the same method as my other infantry, but the lighting makes him look a lot darker skinned than he actually is. With him done, I've finished painting half my platoons for my Desert Brits, well on target for the next tournament March 23rd (or 14th or whenever that weekend is...). Next up will be my Heavy Machine Gunners!

Looking a bit "extra" sunburnt here. I'll be going back over all my skin shades for this army once I've got them all tabletop ready.

Closeup of poorly done stowage. I really need more boxes of stuff to add too.
And here's the platoon all together.


  1. Lovely paintwork sir! What rules are you using for ACW?

    1. Thanks! We'll be using the Regimental Fire and Fury rules set. I liked it, simple and straight forward at a scale that was small enough to make for large-looking battles and still look cool on the tabletop. (Plus I can use some of my existing 15mm terrain I own for Flames of War too.)

  2. Oh, that all looks just brilliant!

    I must say, those generals are particularly characterful: I couldn't paint a horse if my life depended on it!

    1. mate, if I can paint a horse, you can.

      thanks as always!
