3mm Union Army - First Regiments

Sunday night I painted up an infantry regiment and artillery battery for my 3mm Union Army, Irish Brigade. I used a blue spray primer from Army Painter and based the models on cut vinyl floor tile 50mm x 40mm. Tonight I sat down to paint and flock the bases. I am not overly happy with how they turned out. The flock/paint had trouble adhering to the base. I've not encountered this before. Perhaps next time I should use a glue/paint mixture. Also it seems using the blue primer was a mistake. I think and others have posted that for this scale priming in black handles your highlighting.For now though they stand ready to serve their adopted country. The next regiment I paint will be primed black.
