Re: Longstreet Rules -Campaign Game #4 AAR

Hey Dropbear, Thanks for the comments! Yes the cards introduce to the game battlefield vagaries and actions that would never come into the mind of sane players with an all seeing view of the tabletop yet we read about regularly in real life battles. Unfortunately the card you most want usually isn't...

Longstreet Rules -Campaign Game #4 AAR

Hi All, This was the fourth game in our Longstreet campaign. It is the first of the three 1863 games the minimum force total per side is still pretty balanced but the action decks now contain the same number of cards! The most ominous change in the deck from the Rebel point of view is the dwindling ...

Leven Miniatures 6mm/10mm Resin Accessories - Rail Tracks

Hi All, For those using 6mm scale stuff (some will be okay for 10mm I think) you cant go past Leven Miniatures: http://www.levenminiatures.co.uk/ I just received three sets of their rail tracks, two stone wall sets, two tent sets and a couple of buildings they are top notch. They surpass any other 6...

Re: Longstreet Rules -Campaign Game #2 AAR

These games we play on an area 90cm deep and 120cm wide allows for the action to start quickly while there is for some manoeuvring. I have just finished my 120cm x 180cm light weight wargaming table, it can be stired in the garage and will sit neatly on my foosball table allowing my partner to have ...

Honour Longstreet Rules Review

Hi All, I bought and set up my 6mm ACW armies to play large scale actions but when I saw Honour’s Longstreet rules I just had to go for it. I have played card based wargames before but not with miniatures so I was taking a bit of a leap! I’m not an expert at reviewing rules but here’s my take on Hon...

Longstreet Rules -Campaign Game #2 AAR

Hi All, This is an AAR of the second scenario of our Longstreet campaign, these campaigns consist of nine games (1x1861, 2x1862, 3x1863, 2x1864 & 1x1865) where the force size limits and USA/CSA special rule cards vary in number so that the Federals slowly gain the ascendancy as the years pass, well ...

Hi All, My mate Dave and I have been playing a Longstreet Rules campaign game for a while now. Unfortunately he's moving to Sydney and we are only up to game 6 of the 9 games required so it may take a while to complete! I am playing the Federals and he is playing the Confederates.

Small Scale Gap Filler Roads & Streams

Hi All, I have posted this elsewhere but thought I'd add it here for any other small scale gamers, great way to get some good terrain at a bargain price. I saw this idea mentioned on a blog so thought I'd give it a try to upgrade my 6mm wargamming terrain. Armed with a $2 tube of gap filler and some...

Hi All, Found this wargamming site so thought I'd better join up! I have been wargamming since the late 1970s! I started out with Airfix 1/72 stuff then graduated to 15mm figures and have recently started upgrading all my armies to 6mm. My main areas of interest are the Napoleonic and ACW periods bu...

Re: Battle of Gettysburg pt 2

Hi Nevermore,

Excellent battlefield and armies! Again good photography.

How did the game play out compared to the historic commentary (looked on the link and could find the pictures but no AAR)?
