Thanks all

Due to some technical issues (me and pc's... it'll never be a solid and loving relationship) I'm experiencing some problems right from the beginning with leaving comments on other peoples blogs and sometimes even commenting on my own stuff.
Rest assured that I do read all your comments and appreciate them very much.
I do look at all your posts and admire them a lot.
It's just that I don't want to leave an ungratefull and sultry impression about myself, I'm not like that at all (more nausiating and rude if you ask those I know).
So here I'd like to leave to you all a big 'thank you' for the nice things said and yet to be said about my miniatures and a wopping 'great work lads' to all my follower's creations.
I already know now that I'm gonna miss this and I do hope that an ARAM II: The paintbrush strikes back (or something) will start in november.

A regiment a month part 4: ACW Confederate cannons and colonel

This week I finally managed to finish my first Confederate pieces for my expending army.
I took a leaf out of Skratch's book and considered 2 cannons as a single regiment, just don't ask me what barrels I've put on them, it were the only 2 I could find.
To sort of celebrate the rediscovery of my 28mm ACW infantery I've painted up my colonel too: colonel Robert Sylvain Burnette leading his part of the 5th Louisiana to glory ( at least I hope he will )
I've watched Gettysburg again a few days ago to take a good look at the uniforms, I ended up in bed around midnight having seen the whole movie anyway, and aparently these lads shared the same rag-tag look as most units of the south.
A look wich I like very much since it gives you a mass of variety on the battlefield without going all 'Orky'.
