Rally around the flag  

Ok, so I lost my password,

finally decided to do something about it and viola here is an update. Plenty of things happening, painting some more Union for Louis, picked up a couple of great ACW books in the last few months, the best being "The official military atlas of the American Civil War", and the "Confederate navy at war".

The "Highlander" convention was on last weekend and we used John's 15mm figures using the Jonny Reb 3 rules, had a blast teaching three others players the rules during the day, the confederates were defending with about 20 odd  regiments and the union assault  had 24 regiments and a brigade of cavalry, it was a great see-sawing game, pictures below.

We used a teddy bear fur drop cloth for the table (some teddy bear lovers would be insulted) that was clipped and airbrushed,the trees were scratch built for 28mm so a little large but they looked good all the same, the dice in the top picture reflect the confederate counter attack about 3/4 of the way through the game. A great time was had by all.
