|Basic paints and tools|
As I stated in my earlier post I think the Gordon &Hague figures are great right out of the package for gaming. As they suggest on their website they are also very suitable for custom work to give them that little extra flare. Since the series 1 Confederates come in a basic Richmond grey paint scheme I decided to start with them first.

The only thing missing is a clear coat of "Testors Dull Coat" to seal them and protect the paint. Due to mailing restrictions that will definitely have to wait until I get home. I have been considering the idea of using the Army Painter dip for these minis instead. I have seen some pics of very nice results, but have never tried it myself due to cost and my old fashioned ink and dry brush painting. I may give it a try though, so if anyone has some thoughts on it let me know. Once they are sealed I will then add some sort of additional flocking to the bases.
I added a couple more regiments the next night following the same methods above:
Your comments and advice are welcome.
Until Next time.....
