So a new year starts and it's time to move into another period with my wargaming. Obviously as I'm posting here it's ACW and in my case a Union force. The scale will be 15/18mm to fit in with other club members' collections and the chosen rules will be Fire & Fury at brigade level.

A lead pile has been acquired,

Plus some already painted that I've re-based

So off we go.
More on the start of this enterprise on my blog at Jabba's Wargaming

Great post and thanks for sharing. I keep looking at the Blue Moon bags I have accumulated and wonder when am I ever going to get to those?

Thanks for inspiring me.

Nice – our group here in San Antonio TX (Lone Star Historical Miniatures – LSHM) is venturing into 28mm Fire & Fury Regimental -- now start painting!!!! Keep us posted.

I've been collectting ACW 15mm since mid-70s. I have a project in progress to replace the very earliest minis because they are true 15MMs and not 18MMs as we use now. I had been using Battle Honors, but they are all painted. I have set aside my OG in favor of Bluemoon. The project is moving along fairly nicely. I figure just about the time I see the light at the end of the tunnel Russ D. will bring out a new line of ACW 18MM figures. Just my luck. firetruck
