AWI Project - First Unit In Progress - Pt VII - 1000th Post

A bit of a milestone, this quick post on the AWI Project marks my 1000th post on the blog. Seems like it has taken forever to get here! I should probably say something profound at this point but that seems like just to much effort on a snowy morning in Colorado.

Anyway over the weekend I was able to finally finish up the black on the accouterments and start working on the white crossbelts. I know it will be necessary to go back and touch up all the sloppy paint work but to this point I'm pretty pleased with this first run at those belts.

The black is finally done, on to the white!

First stick done with Reaper Linen White. I'll go back with pure white as a highlight.


  1. 1000th post! Congratulations! (I am also envious of the snow as it has been hot here)

    And these Revolutionary war figures are coming along nicely too.

  2. Thank you, I should have punched the whole thing up a bit, but some days just finding the time to enjoy the hobby is challenging. I think the Rev War guys are coming along pretty good so far, to slow, but coming along.
