ACW cavalry

These were painted up for John in return for some unpainted infantry to be turned into Indians for the Indo-Pakistani 1965 project. The rest of John's ACW collection is painted using the Army Painter dip, so these were painted to fit in with that. They are very basic and all shading is accomplished by the tin of gloop. They could be highlighted up in places, but that would mean that they don't fit in with the rest of the armies. In essence, this is what my 'wargames standard' painting looks like - the most basic job I can do, that I'm satisfied with.
Hair can be any colour you want, so long as it's brown.

John will give them another coat of matt varnish to remove a few remaining bits of shiny, but he took them away this afternoon happy.

Now - Zombies.



  1. Great stuff. I would have thought John took them away being extremely happy, Natholeon. They look terrific :-)

  2. Nice, very nice...now you'll have to charge the future zombies!

  3. Thanks everyone. As I say, it isn't my bet painting, but the dip does do is job well.
