Little figures


Recommended Posts

30-40 years ago, I didn't prime and painted with enamels. I didn't varnish either. Flaking was always a problem back then. It's always been in the back of my mind to go over the old figures, a few I've done, there are still many to do.

I have been remiss, since my last post I have painted a single Esci 222 figure.
I swapped his head that wore the Hardee hat for one wearing the Bummer cap. He is painted as a Lieutenant of the 5th New York Regiment in 1862. Zouave Officers' uniforms were somewhat plainer than those of their men (I have some Italeri Zouaves he will be joining), so, proportionally I did not want lots of Officers and just painted the one.

And these:

Private, 39th New York Regiment, 1861

Musician, 9th Regiment, Veteran Reserve Corps, 1865
