ECW Cavalry

The ECW Painting is progressing.  The fist unit of cavalry is complete.  I was a little disappointed in the quality of the figures.  Most of the Old Glory figures have been very good.  These were on the south end of the ranges they produce.

ECW Paint-a-thon

In preparation for the big Pike and Shotte throw down at Nash-con I have been painting like crazy.   I almost feel bad calling what I have been doing painting.   The dip painting method is so fast its almost not fair.  I have painted about 140 figures in 20 days.   The results are not the best ever but for the time invested, I am getting more and more comfortable with the results.

I have three 24 figures units of pike and shot in blue.  I may bulk these out with another half base of pike.  I like the look of the deeper pike formation.

I have another 2 24 figure units in green.  

I'm not in love with the paint job but I am guessing I have about 20 hours in painting time in all these figures.    I can live with the results for 10 minutes a figure.

First WW I Units Done

So here I a jumping around and taking months off.. Just like the title says.. I'm spastic.

  So I just knocked out the first 2 units of Brits and Germans for the WW I project.   They are block painted and inked.  I haven't decided if I am going to go back and highlight them or not.  I kinda like the dirty look.  

The figures are all from Old Glory.  They are not bad sculpts and seem to suit a quick style of painting.
