Newly painted figures (its been a while..........)

After a long hiatus (close to a year) I have gotten the painting bug again and have over last couple of weeks painted up a few figures. Strictly wargaming 'standard' as my skills are not that great but the wee blokes look great en mass rather than in posing mode.
Hoping to get through a ton of unpainted lead I have accumulated in last two visits to Warfare show (planning another jaunt this November) not to mention the further tonnage hidden away for years (I have some 6mm ACW I bought for 1st edition Johnny Reb some 20 years ago still languishing in a box !!). 15-20 figures at a time of varied types seems to be keeping me interested. Gone I think are the days of painting a whole army in one long batch. As can be seen in photo below I still use Humbrol enamels primarily but do have a few acrylics. Purchased my first Vallejo acrylics and these I really like. I don't, and never have, used any sort of primer/undercoat (burn the heretic) and find the Vallejo are mostly capable of covering bare metal.
