Recently I discovered that a new version of Fire and Fury has been release, "Regimental Fire and Fury".
Unfortunately, I had no troops. Several years ago I had sold off the last of my painted 15mm armies when my children were young and there was no hope of playing again anytime soon.
What to do? I must re-build of course. At the recommendation of my LGS I decided to go even smaller and give 10mm a try. The figs are still of decent quality and paint up just as quick. Before I knew it I had dozens of craft sticks with primed soldiers ready to paint. Several hours later I had one regiment complete. :(
OK I remembered this going faster. As luck would have it I attended a con the following weekend. What did I find in the flea market...a whole army work of painted and unmounted 10mm infantry both Union and Confederate. It was perfect. Additionally I found someone to help me paint the primed minis I already had thus doubling the size of my intended forces. Now in a matter of hours of basing and touching up I had close to 4 brigades worth of troops.
More to come.......
