The Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) club held its annual gaming show 10-12 November in Austin Texas:

Presented by Stephen Huckaby

Refight the epic first day of Gettysburg using Civil War paper soldiers from artist Peter Dennis' forth coming book "Wargame the American Civil War." Take command of the famed Iron Brigade, or a brigade of hard hitting Army of Northern Virginia veterans as they attempt to crush the Army of the Potomac. This game will utilize the fast pace and easy to learn, The Devil to Pay rules.

Looks great. I just ordered Dennis' book of War of the Rose troops.

And I ordered the American Revolution book myself; the book has yet to arrive.

The ACW figures and game looked really nice when I saw them in person at Millennium, although the area where they were photographed was kind of dark.

It was a fun game with lots of ebb and flow to it (I am the one in the fox t-shirt). As you can see there my poor right flank was quite outnumbered, both units at this point are down just one stand each but they held him off to the end of the game but they were in horrible shape with one all but gone and the the other broken and run off the field.

How easy/difficult are the figures to cut out and base ? I am not very adept at this sort of practical thing.
