Confederate-themed McCabe crew


Recommended Posts



Has anyone got experience with using the Vallejo American Civil War paint set? I'm thinking of painting a Lucas McCabe crew and Guild Riflemen in a vaguely Confederate theme - lots of greys and earth tones with some flashes of colour - and was wondering if that was my best bet for a starter set. It might be worth mentioning that I haven't painted a miniature for about 20 years.

Thanks for the replies. I was thinking a white undercoat would help avoid the end result looking too 'flat', so it's good to know I'm on the right track and that the Vallejo paints come recommended. 


Regarding Sidir, I think he's such an obviously 'exotic' member of the crew that I'm not going to worry too much about fitting him into the scheme. I love the model so if he stands out from the rank and file I don't mind at all.
