28mm ACW For Sale!

28mm ACW For Sale!

I'm "right sizing" my ACW collection and am thinking about heading off into some new periods. I'm selling 5 units of Rebs and 4 units of Federals. I rarely sell painted figures and I'm selling these off at a deal for $5 - $6 per painted figure. This is a great deal for well painted figures considering the cost alone of the unpainted models. I can mail anything in the USA for $9.00 and will ship world wide for exactly whatever it costs to mail the figures. Email me if you are interested! Cory

I will also offer a 10% discount if you buy "all the rebs", or "all the yanks", or 15% of if you purchase everything". 

Here is what I'm selling:

The Rebs:

31st TN - 25 Dixon figures $6 per figures = $150 US
21 TN Mounted Cavalry - 20 mounted, mixed Old Glory figures $5 per figure = $100 SOLD
54 GA - 20 1st Corps figures $5 per figure = $100 SOLD
Phillip's TN battery - 4 Old Glory figures and two Armstrong guns = $25 SOLD
Ferguson's SC battery - 4Old Glory figures and 2 6# guns = $25  SOLD

The Yanks:

36 IL - 25 Dixon figures $6 per figure = $150
72 IL - 25 Dixon figures $6 per figure = $150
118 OH - 25 Dixon figures $6 per figure = $150 SOLD
1st OH Battery Section G - 6 Dixon figures and 3 12# guns = $45 SOLD

Here are some pics of the units:

War of the Roses Game at Nashcon 2013

War of the Roses Game at Nashcon 2013

My friend Titch and I ran a 28mm War of the Roses game this year at Nashcon. We used the same table as my ACW game, but switched things up enough to make the change from 19th Century Virginia to Medieval England. It was a big battle, with all of our figures on the table. We plan on running this battle every year at Nashcon and our plan is too keep adding figures and tables and growing this thing into a "mega-battle"!

We used Medieval Tactica rules and  fought a hypothetical scenario from the Tewkesbury campaign of 1471. The Yorkists, lead by Titch, defeated the Lancastrians with an all out assault on the center of their line. Here are some pictures of the battle:

The Lancastrian right flank is closest to the camera. Rob is checking out his knights.

The battle as seen from the Yorkist right flank. Titch brought a castle to set up at the end of the table. We had some neutral "Stanley" forces set up inside the castle.

The castle! The battle is beginning to heat up!

Looking forward to running this game next year!
