HMGS' Fall In was canceled. The virus and Prince Wolfe doing their best to keep us down and poor. Can't stop me. I got a player base to develop, games to play, and a home table. This is the second game for one new player and a second dude came by to watch. The second dude Bill, wants in next game!

The job is slack and there is an office with a door. Which I needed or the ACW would never have gotten done. The only positive to this shit is I am painting my ass off.
I started off with a failure. Normally I do not unpack my kit. Well I did and in doing so I left the wet palette at home. Yeah I will be painting from the bottle this week. In an effort to correct his situation, next week I will leave one here forever.
Man it was rough painting these dudes. I even split the job lot. It was way too hard to get into a rhythm. I struggled the 3 days.
North & South Artillery
Cannons are easy. I never did look up what the carriage would have been painted. I don't really care. The Anglo-Egyptian guns just magically ended up the right color. I picked 3 colors from the kit and had at it.
I am reading both "The Blood of Heroes and Betrayals. Betrayals at work and Blood of Heroes at the hotel at night. I am more into the Blood of Heroes. No one bothers me at the hotel. It seems every time I pick up Betrayals some fuck calls or emails me about how retarded they are.
Betrayals is the better book. Only because Blood of Heroes jumps back and forth with the time line as personalities are introduced with their back story.
This group were painted before dad died while I was at work. It took all this time to find a few hours to finish them up. All they needed was Flocking and sealing.
The start of the Cavalry. I for some reason have little to no cavalry for either side. This is more than likely because I hate painting horses. Cavalry is pretty expensive to buy painted. I started ACW long long ago. Since then I have developed a reasonable or acceptable to me paint job for horses.
Union Horse holders
Finally enough Union are done I have started on the Confederates.
