This is the first post on my new blog, Paint and Tin, a play on Bismarck's famous Blut und Eisen speech. I intend to focus on the hobby of Miniature War Gaming and all the facets of the hobby that interest me; figures, painting of figures, gaming with those painted figures and the rules used to game with those painted figures.
At the moment, I'm waiting for the quiet time to start painting some 28mm ACW figures that arrived all the way from France courtesy of http://forgottenglorious.blogspot.com/
The figures, in this case the 14th (Brooklyn) New York State Militia, are very nice with crisp details and no flash to speak of. They should paint up nicely. More to follow as the painting progresses.
