Superb! Though my very first thought was why that mat won't lay flat.

Thanks for post this…I guess. As for the mat, well, there are four of them. They spend most of their time folded in the original boxes. Once they are spread across a huge table with several hundred figures and terrain they move around a bit. I don't tape them to avoid damage. Oh and since it is a 12'x8' table sometimes they get crawled on. Thanks!

The figure seem to be a mix of Perry and Redoubt but I'm curious what the manufacturers are. Lovely table and figures.

Lots of Sash and Saber in the mix. I particularly noticed our VMI cadets on the field (unit in blue-grey and white flag) in the bottom photo in Armand's post.

Yes, there are lots of Sash and Saber models! Those are some of our favorites. There are a lot of Perry plastic figures as well as Foundry. There is a small amount of Old Glory but I am not sure of Redoubt.

Didnt realize that VMI Corps of Cadets were at Salem Church

Perhaps another battle to get them out for

I have no idea if they were there or not. We just used the figures in our collections.
