I will need to paint up MORE casualty markers but this game was alot of fun. I like how the units look with the 24 stand Regiments - much more realistic than my previous basing schemes.
So check another block off of my stay-cation goals! I have gamed Combat Team and Black Powder!
I need to obviously paint up more ACW units, rebase my AWI guys for Black Powder, and keep cranking out more Napoleonic stands.
