Not a lot of hobby action today, but I have managed to basecoat the Perry Union infantry regiments with a coat of Army Painter Ultramarine Blue.
This does look too light at the moment, but it will darken down with the application of some Dark Tone dip. The painting guide on the Army Painter website shows an acceptable end result using both.
I have now also sorted out the Confederate regiments, mixing up the basecoated grey and brown figures and blu-tacking them to their bases. The idea now is to work on them one regiment at a time (as you can see five command figures are missing and the gaps will be filled by metal figures).
Again I will be dipping them and the picture from the guide on the Army Painter website looks good enough for me.
