Very nice looking armies you have there Konstantinos. Did you enjoy painting one more than the other? We play 10mm ACW at our club and most people have found the CSA figures easier and nicer to paint (both sets of Pendraken figures are very nice though). The confederate cavalry is a high point for me in the range.
I painted my Union much earlier and with more gusto. Also the Union Army was painted for Gaines Mill (Altar of Freedom) so it was more colorful. My confederates were painted for completions sake and in drab 1864 colors. I do think the CSA figures are nicer and with more character, but I did enjoy more my Union.
Do you plan on expanding either of the armies? (I’m assuming that’s one of each army pack?) I was adamant when I got my initial army pack that I wouldn’t add anything else……I failed miserably, extra cavalry, dismounted cavalry, artillery limbers, wagons and now I’m painting zouaves. I’m blaming the visual effect of 10mm on mass for my over indulgence.
