First Confederates Done

Well...mostly done. I'm still trying to decide how I want to do flags for the army...paper or metal? Not to mention researching the right flag for each unit...which, I might add, is a lot of fun!

Anyway, I have the first regiment of Law's Alabama Brigade done...this will be the 4th Alabama.

WW2 and ACW weekend with Rodrigo!

I got two great games in with Rod this weekend...the first a 900 point Flames of War "Infantry Aces" battle for our Cassino campaign, and another 'learning' game for 'Guns at Gettysburg'!

*Warning: if you're offended by unpainted models, or empty bases representing companies of infantry or batteries of cannon, please don't read anymore!*

My first attempt at ACW! Charge!

15mm Historical Gaming: Jumping in with both feet!

Since I started miniature wargaming a million years ago (my first Warhammer game was in 1989 or 90 with my friend Brad in Austin, TX!), I've always wanted to do some historical.

I do some Flames of War, which is great, but for me lacks the panache of the 19th century warfare...flags, ranked up units, cavalry charging, cannon booming. That's what I've always wanted to do!

It took just a single post on the Ordo Ineptus message board for me to jump in with both feet!

Onward! To new games and new minis and empty wallets!

Battle for Thanatos Battle Report: Dark Eldar vs Tyranid!

This week I got another game in with Sean in our continuing Planetary Empires campaign, The Battle for Thanatos.

We met at 2000 points, each of us using our "tournament" lists...
