I've been painting a bunch of ACW lately, since I'm getting ready for a game I'm going to run at a convention in May. 

I still have plenty of time, but I need to paint another brigade of Yankees (80 figs), more siege artillery, and a bunch of earthworks and redoubts since it will be a Vicksburg game! 

Here are some of the figs fresh off the painting table! These are mostly ACW Gamer 28mm figures, and I think they look awesome, and they just might be my favorite ACW figures at the moment.

The heavy siege artillery is from Perry Miniatures, and of course, they are great figures as too! The two ranges blend well together I think. Anyway, here are the pics:

Good gaming!

War of the Roses

Here are some pics from two 25mm War of the Roses games we recently played. I enjoy using Arty Conliffe's excellent "Medieval Tactica" rules.

They are fun, fast, simple and provide for a great game with a feel for the period.

Good Gaming,
