I painted up a few good candidates but decided on a figure created from a Redoubt miniatures body and a Steve Barber head. The pose reminds me of the sequence where the regiment charges the railroad cut.

This looks quite bright at the moment but black washes will tone it all down.
Back up and running! Stronger than before, the fighting fish banner flies again!

These Union regiments are very fun to do as there is minimal uniform reference to look up. Once you know the basic colours it’s just a case of blocking them out. This is a new tin of Army Painter and the drying time is well over 48 hrs, in fact I’d say double that. However, if you’re patient the results are good enough.
The new supplement for Oathmark supplies rules for skirmishers and more importantly, shield walls. This should be very handy for this army and of course my Dwarves of the Iron Hills.

This Esgaroth army has been really rewarding to convert and build but I’m feeling a bit burnt out by it now. It was interesting to try the Army Painter stain on them and blast through the ranks, just seeing the numbers stack up was rewarding enough. The stain has a nice effect, I’ve even been thinking maybe I should try the Dark tone on a batch of orcs...maybe those pesky Warg riders.
Well, maybe a couple of test figures are in order first.
