Here you can see the high command of both armies on the painting board, hopefully you can see how easy it is to identify the different ranks. I needed a system to show quickly the four levels of high command and I am quite pleased with the result.
General Lee mounted on Traveler at front left, with Corps and Divisional commanders in view. The Union commanders at the rear. I have painted two army commander stands for each army.
This shot mainly shows the Brigadier Generals, these will feature in greater numbers on the table top. Their round bases being particularly easy to spot.
On the painting board now are a number of supply wagons and horse teams, the covered wagons have separate wheels which, as you can imagine, are very tiny and extremely fiddly to glue onto the wagon chassis. I intend to actually fix them in place before starting to paint as the last time, I have already built two, it was a nightmare trying to fix on the painted wheels, the superglue just took off all the paint and made a right mess, it required the whole thing to be repainted, I shan't make that mistake again.
