I played this game around 1883/4 I think with my first historical figures, 15mm Minifigs. Being dyslexic I struggled even more so back then than now, so came to an arrangement with my school friend. I gave him the rules to learn, while I painted the armies. The result was three very memorable games. Being a novice I remember having a whole regiment armed with shot guns... I think I must have got confused as I have 18 figures armed with shot guns. These I know now were obviously meant to be Confederate dismounted cavalry in the basic Minifig sculpts.

I’m trying a slightly new technique with these guys, just one flesh tone before the dip. Once the varnish is dry I will go back and just highlight it again with the same colour. Hopefully with the flesh tone looking good your eye won’t notice the simple nature of the rest of the painting.
