    My latest WIP. FER Miniature's 75MM Iron Brigade. It’s painted in acrylics. Pants are pretty well done. So is the backpack. I’m working frock coat and quite frankly struggling with it.

    More to come as I progress on this thinG

    I'd have to agree with BigTodd, the depth of the blues is blending quite nicely!

    If that's you struggling, I'm very envious of your skills and find myself asking what it would look like if you were breezing through it without a care in the world!

    Coming together really well, will be a belter when you've finished it.

    Nice work.
    What aspect of the frock coat is troublesome (I have this fig in the cupboard)?

    Struggling or not, that's some smooth brushwork on that uniform Mike! Anxiously awaiting the final product.(y)

    Nice work! My great-great grandfather was in the 2nd Wisconsin, part of the Iron Brigade. He would have approved!

    This is really going to come together when the skin tones come in and reds are added.

    More updates, I’m about done with straps, belts, boxes and canteen and other stuff. I’ll move on to piping and chevrons next, then brass items and other metals excluding the head.

    I add weathering after the figure is completed.

    It’s moving along weather quickly.

    Wow, this is coming along quite nicely. I had hoped to pair this figure with another Iron Brigade figure on which I am currently working, but alas, this one is OOP. I will be following your progress.

    Very nice work, and useful reference material.
    Interesting how far you take the painting process before completing construction.
    This is one of the best parts of the WIP threads: everyone has their own preferred approach.
