ACW Naval Action!

The local gamers have been getting together and hosting large "games days". I was able to briefly make it by yesterday and was really impressed with David R's. ACW naval game. I've played his game before and it's a simple, fun and action packed time! The scenario was the "Battle of Neely's Bend" in Nashville on the Cumberland River and the Confederates squeaked out a victory. Here are some pics of his amazing boats:


These are big boats...probably 12-18 inches long! There is a line of torpedoes in the middle of the table and CSA artillery on the bank in the the right middle.

The CSA fleet.

The Yanks come steaming up the river!

25mm Confederate Artillery

I recently painted these two CSA batteries. Each stand represents a section of two guns in "Johnny Reb 2". In JR2 each stand of artillery only needs two figures, but I painted some extras just for eye appeal, and also to represent additional sections when playing JR3 or "Across A Deadly Field".

These are old, true 25mm figures from Frontier Miniatures. They have a lot of "old school charm", but they sure were tough to clean up. They had massive amounts of flash and mold lines! I miss some of the figures from the "good old days", but I sure don't miss all the prep time! Take care - Cory

Perry's Florida Battery in action!

Phelan's Alabama Battery sends some shot and shell in the general direction of the Yankees!

Both batteries in action!
