Re: Antietam 2016 Refight

Thank you Norm. I based the fences on strips of ply board, super glued the fence sections down (they are metal fences) then silver sand on pv glue. Painted and dry brush highlighted, same colours and technique I use for the unit bases and modelling of kallistra hexes. Finally the same flock as the h...

Re: napoleonic rules

They're great rules and made for a good game, albeit my slow taking up on the mechanics (all part of the process). I was inspired enough to undercoat Hanoverian and French units yesterday so the rules have triggered the impetus I much needed to get those damn 28's painted! The rules could be crudely...

Re: hi

Will be great to see the 6mm Rebs and Union thrashing it out! Battle Reports seem daunting but just put down the main info and attach some photos ( I learnt that you can only attach 4 or 5 photos at once...I am not IT tech enough to know reason or I may be doing it wrong!) post them in the Bat Rep s...

Figures are based on 45 X 20 Even figs on the larger bases 45 X 40 fit with in square formation. Only artillery 2 guns are over sized for a hex with my base sizes 45 X 80 but at 28mm th...

Re: napoleonic rules

Norm, I have read your QB scenario. You have done a fine job of capturing the events, sequence and spirit of the battle. I am going to blow the dust off my 28mm Quatre Bras project and paint up the remaining lead and plastic pile so I can use your rules and scenario! Many thanks for these and the in...

Re: napoleonic rules

Hi Norm
I've just looked at the rules, these will be perfect for using with my latest 'project' 6mm Naps and the Kallistra terrain.
Thanks

Re: hi

Welcome to the forum.
It would be great to see a battle report with your 6mm ACW.
