So, here are some pictures of the samples I painted.
All of the models are from Sash and Saber which are very nice castings; very clean, with little if any flash and good detailing.
So with my decision to paint up the bulk of the Union and artillery crew, I've decided to send a fairly large 28mm Byzantine army off to get painted as well. I've recently started playing Clash of Empires and my interest in 28mm ancients has been sparked again.
More updates to follow as I work toward finishing up some projects and starting some new projects.
