Hi Larry  :wave:



77 done ! ... WOW !!  :shocked:

They look GREAT !  :thumb:



What kind of paint do you like for doing the figures with ?  L:

I guess you're using some kind of magnifier as well ?

Hi Si,

I now have completed over 150 soldiers for the layout.
Over 100 are not yet planted and are awaiting orders.
I have around 50 I have not yet started.
I also have 50 - 60 Horses and Mules to paint.

I use Vallejo paints and washes.
I use dollar store 2.75 readers to help me see.

Larry

Wonderful work!
Just how many figures do you think will be needed?
I can see many more in the future.
Please, more photos.

I get the 2.75 glasses also,
Wally World has 3 packs for not much more than just one.
I need 3 chances, I am always losing a pair...

Woodie

Thank you Woodie,

I will purchase as many figures as I can.
They are extremely hard to come by.
In the end I figure 300 figures, 50 - 60 horses and Mules,
40 carts / vehicles, 5000 - 7000 detail parts, 15 pieces of motive power,
50 pieces of rolling stock and 16 cannon to complete the layout.
At this point I have acquired around 70 percent of what I need.

The number of detail parts is astonishing.
I have already painted at least 2000 of them.
The details and figures are created and painted in assembly line fashion,
and many are sitting on a shelf ready to quickly add as scenery goes down.
Glad I know how to cast parts and have friends who cast them for me,
or 3D print them as a favor.
