At this stage of the campaign the Rebels are four games to one up while the Confederate leader is now one point ahead in t...

Re: Trees - 28mm Scale Games

Hey Dropbear, Thanks if you can let me know the size you use it would be great and a couple of pictures would be very helpful. I reckon I am taking advantage of the same slave labour in China As I have about 350 39mm trees which suit the 6mm figures perfectly and these small ones are super cheap! Ch...

Trees - 28mm Scale Games - pictures of my 'forest' added

Hi All,

Just preparing to set up a Brother Against Brother in 28mm scale skirmish (something different to 6mm Longstreet :D ) and just wondering what height others make/buy trees for this scale for a good look (in scale would be huge!)?

Cheers

Re: ACW Basing Options - Two Types Opinions Welcome

Hi Guys, Thanks for the replies! I laid out two formed ranks with skirmishers out front when playing around on the weekend but it looked crowded I'll try a base and see how it compares. Im not rebasing all my 6mm ACW figures (about 3000) but I had some loose still so am playing around with them for ...

Olustee Scenario - Longstreet Rules - Map Updated

Hi All, This has now had three run throughs two face to face and one solo effort. I think it works well as a one on one clash but I did put it together as a four player game for Litte Wars Adelaide July 2014 but due to lack of players able to commit for the day to help run it I've canned that (maybe...

ACW Basing Options - Two Types Opinions Welcome

Hi All, Toying with rebasing some of my 6mm ACW troops below are the options I'm looking at, they'll be a mixture of 30mm x 30mm and 60mm x 30mm sized bases any opinions on which looks best would be welcome. They'll be used with several sets of rules. Option 1 http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e393/...

Re: 1812 Franco Russia -war and Peace

Hi Fanai, These figures looks great, especially the cavalry! Very well painted. Nothing better than masses of well painted 28mm figures. Makes my 28mm ACW and Napoleonic ones look lame. But 28mm is not my favoured wargaming scale except for skirmish games, figures look out of scale when placed for l...

Re: Battle of Olustee - Longstreet Scenario

Hi Stu,

Thanks for the endorsement, I will contact you soon so you can try this scenario using your 'cunning plan' which I think is a plan so cunning if you added four legs and a tail to it you could call it a cat!
