For painting tips have a look at the Bend Sinister/Redline Miniatures site, there’s a how to on there – I’ve a few Napoleonics in 10mm and they are a breeze to paint (especially if you aren’t going for every button etc.) so I’m thinking that the simpler ACW uniforms will be nice and quick too. When I’ve painted butternut before I’ve used differing shades of lightish to earthy brown (if that makes sense) even a greeny-grey might be ok – have some fun mixing them up! I’d check the Nafziger Collection out for orbats etc.


Thanks for the tips — but have I missed something on the Redline site as I don’t seem to be able to find the ‘How to’…
