This proved to be a dreadful turkey shoot. Union troops on top of a hill and behind prepared positions tore up crack Confederate units that were attempting to dislodge them. Union reserves arrived on time which diverted Southern resources away from the main objective – that of capturing the hill. The Army of Tennessee was unable to exploit their superior morale and ้lan to achieve victory. The Federals stuck doggedly to the game plan and did what was necessary.
We used old school Fire & Fury and were, again, pleased with how well they flowed and how a larger game can be completed in an evening. The figures are nearly all Perry Miniatures – plastic and metal.

That ACW game looks great! I am about to start basing my Perry ACW figures. Can I ask what size bases you use and where you purchased them from?

Very nice!

Hi WarWizard,

I put 4 of them in two ranks on 40mm frontage, 50mm depth. A little bit of room at the back helps!

I just buy 2mm depth MDF picture backing boards. Usually comes in 2 foot by 3 foot boards in the UK. Then I cut to size with a Stanley knife. One order lasts years.

Any other queries, let me know. Best of luck with the project!
