    I'm just about finished with this 75mm ACW figure of Elmer Ellsworth from FER Miniatures. I painted this as a gift for me dad who is a Civil War history buff and the one who originally got me into miniature painting. ACW Zouaves were one of things he used to love to paint, so Ellsworth seemed like an ideal piece for him.

    Painted in acrylic. One of the new things I'm working on with this figure is painting cast shadows. Just the second piece I've tried it on, so I'm still learning. But I'm relatively happy with the result.

    I also thought it was interesting to look back at the last piece I did for him, especially since it was such a similar subject. I posted that one back in May of 2012, so there's 10 years of additional practice painting.

    I'm going to say that sometimes we all try to emulate beautiful box art, you have really painted something that looks like Fernando Ruiz himself would do. Really well done!

    Lovely piece and sure your dad will be well pleased. Like the richness of the red on his cap and sash and lovely skin tones.
