Not exactly Cold War this week but here is some ACW progress for you. This has to be some kind of speed record for me as I was able to slap some paint on 2 whole ACW Regiments this week! 1 complete Union Regiment, 1 complete Confederate Regiment, 1 Union Officer (Brigade Commander) and 1 Union "Battery" of 3" rifles.
Back in January, I sketched out a rough plan for some solo wargaming. Each month has a particular "theme" to it with March being the American War for Independence and April (of course!) being the American Civil War. I plan on playing the first portion of the Battle for McPherson's Ridge. Anyone who followed my epic Gettysburg Day 2 battle for the Peach Orchard last year, then you know I love a good ACW brawl. I played the Peach orchard using Black Powder rules and I'm going to possibly play McPherson's Ridge using Black Powder or even Neil Thomas' One Hour Wargame Rules (or both!).
|Union Commander pondering his next move....slowly.|
|Love the officer figure!|
|Yankee Battery Not flocked or washed but you get the idea.|
|Rebel Casualties. I will knock 3 more casualty stands together for my new Union Regiment as well. 3 means you have most likely reached your "shaken" level in Black Powder.|
|Continental or State Line casualties. I cannot wait to paint up a unit with brown coats and blue cuffs and facings!|
|My as of yet unfinished British. Oddly enough, I have more AWI British but not nearly enough casualties for them!|
|The dreaded Hessians! Preparing to give "Lord" Stirling's Division the Cold Steel at Long Island!|
|My lovely Green Mountain Boys! Very pleased with them. THey will stand in as "generic" militia as well.|
Alright that's it for progress at the moment. My work hours will be changing so I fear not as much progress in the future, but I'll give it my best shot.
Right now I have 2 AH-64 "Apaches" in the queue to stand in as AH-1 Cobras for Team Yankee. They just need their decals and the Hellfire's painted and they'll be good to go!
