15mm ACW game pictures

An overview of the table. I set up some terrain for a 15mm ACW game, and one
of my young sons set up the figures while I was working late! He actually did a really nice
job with the troops! 

Gotta love the giant red dice! Another shot of some of
my older figures.

Abe Lincoln hidden in the background! Peter Pig figure.

Another old unit - the 72 OH - these are old Empire / Heritage figs.
These guys have seen a lot of action over the years!

My son set up some of my older figures that I normally wouldn't set
on the table. The early war red legged unit (Stone Mtn figures) was painted in 1989 and most of the time these
guys just keep the cigar box warm!

Some more plastic Perry War of the Roses

I have been in a painting frenzy lately getting ready for the local convention in May. This is the last unit I needed to paint for a WOR game me and my friend Titch W. are going to run at the con. Here are a few pics!

I base my figs on card to paint. Everybody has their own technique for this, but
I've found this is what works best for me.

The finished unit. This picture was taken with my cell phone on top of my car! The natural light
always make the figs look better than they really are! I also made about 10 feet of hedges for the game. I just
flocked a bunch of those paint stir sticks you can get at any DIY store.

Now I'll be moving on to more 28mm ACW Dixon figs!
