Some Progress

ACW - Terrible Sharp Sword
I finally got the miniatures dipped and sprayed with the anti-shine spray. I have finished off 3/4ths of my Infantry Company. I have three officers (a captain and two lieutenants) and two NCOs as Big men for this company. I have six painted and based groups of eight men. I still have another two groups of eight on painting sticks. Of these most are ones I need to repaint. Enough with words, here is what they look like.

This is an overhead shot of the troops.

This is a closer view of the one complete platoon.

I also have some Union troops painted but not based. These were the Union Zouaves that I purchased off of Ebay. I am very happy with these minis.

Dark Ages Skirmish
I also have painted up my first few Dark Ages 15mm miniatures. I am doing a Saxon army circa 300 - 500 AD. Here are the first few that I have.

These are some of what will be the command elements. The overall leader will be the fellow with the raven shield. I hope to buy some more of these exelent minis from Splintered Light Miniatures in the near future.

Next up are some of the cannon fodder for the shield wall. The bulk of my troops for my Saxons (and for my Romano-Britons too) will be unarmored spearmen.

In the end, I hope to have some 48 unarmored spearmen, some 12 armored spearmen, and a few mounted Saxons for color. I purchased the personality pack and will start on those soon. Two very nifty shaman types in there. One of whom is jumping around with a large snake. There is also a bare chested giant. Very fun miniatures from a great line of minis.
