I love these little guys! I had painted these figures a few years ago, but they never made it out of their cigar box very often...until recently. There is a great group of local DBA gamers that has rekindled my interest in playing on this small scale. I have always like the concept of gaming the "big battles", and this is the best way to do it in an hour or two! I had originally built my orders of battle for Gettysburg, but I have reorganzied everything for the battle of Stones River. Here are some pictures of these little 2mm guys in action. Each stand represents a brigade or a battery. I have been using standard DBA rules with modifications from the Wrexham and District Wargamers "DBA Extension for the American Civil War" by Craig Cartmell.

I also have been making some towns, fields, orchards and farms for this scale. I will post some pictures when
these are completed.
