Phase one of my American Civil War project has been completed. My Goal for phase one was to paint enough figures to re-fight the battle for Henry House Hill (1st Bull Run). It took me eleven months (Oct, 2010 to Sep, 2011) to paint the approximant 1500 figures required to meet this goal. Over those eleven months, I successfully avoided the temptations of stating other projects and I stayed focused solely on meeting my goal. This within its self is a great achievement for me. Below are some images of the final product.
My advice for anyone starting a large project like this is: 1) If you’re in the states and plan on ordering overseas, estimate that it will take about 6 weeks to get your order. 2) Set achievable goals. Pick a small or medium size battle and set that as your goal. After meeting that goal pick a larger battle for the next goal. 3) Most important, stay focused on meeting your goal and don’t stray into other projects or periods.
