Here are some other recent creations (click to enlarge). On the left are two American officers by Essex. On the right are two American officers by Musket Miniatures. The uniformed officer at far right is with the Green Mountain Boys, a unit that I'm currently working to complete.

Progress in Painting
I didn't get much painting done during the first several months of the year, but recently there has been an uptick in my output. I've also noticed that the quality of my work continues to improve. Below (on the left) are a pair of minis that I painted a few years ago and a pair (on the right) that I finished a few weeks ago. In both cases the marching figure is a Freikorps mini (at least I think so, they are from a lot I picked up on eBay), and the charging figure is by Minifigs. The more recent figures show better detail because I'm not applying the paint as thickly as I used to. This especially helps when it comes to bringing out facial detail. I'm also getting better at creating softer, more natural appearing colors through color mixing.
