Are you still adding to your ACW figure collection?

Not at the moment, but undoubtedly will.

nickinsomerset25 Aug 2018 9:41 p.m. PST

Yes, 20mm plastics for F&F. Thought I was done, but saw the "latest" Strelets stuff, and actually was slightly short for the bigger scenarios!

Tally Ho!

My husband and his two friends are just gettig back in to ACW. They were Johnny Reb players, but now have switched to Regimental Fire&Fury, and have decided to raise new armies using the 18mm figures from BLUE MOON.

I will be doing most of the painting. Free of charge, of course…

Winston Smith25 Aug 2018 9:56 p.m. PST

No. I sold mine.

langobard Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 1:10 a.m. PST

Yes, in both 18 and 28mm.

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 2:39 a.m. PST

Yes but very slowly.

Ed Mohrmann Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 3:15 a.m. PST

Yes, both 28 and 15/18

LAP195426 Aug 2018 3:59 a.m. PST

Yes! Always adding something. Strelets have been the newest additions. Wish the 22mm Musket Miniatures was on the market. A few items from that collection I wasn't able to get. Recently added some Newline artillery crews.

Extrabio1947 Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 4:05 a.m. PST

Of course

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 5:45 a.m. PST

No. I had them in plastic 1/72 with a few metal until I sold off the plastic and rebuilt in 20mm metal. Fully planned development and the first collection that I have been able to declare completed.

Personal logo Dances with Clydesdales Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 6:18 a.m. PST

Always adding something.

DOUGKL26 Aug 2018 6:24 a.m. PST

Yes slowly but steadily.

Wackmole9 Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 6:29 a.m. PST


rustymusket Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 6:30 a.m. PST

In fits and starts, but yes.

Doug MSC Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 6:42 a.m. PST

No. I sold mine.

steamingdave4726 Aug 2018 6:45 a.m. PST

Not currently, but plan to get more for Fire and Fury in 6mm.

torokchar Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 7:02 a.m. PST

Yes, our group in San Antonio Texas – 28mm using Regimental Fire & Fury

Ragbones Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 7:13 a.m. PST

Nope, I sold mine.

Personal logo Saber6 Supporting Member of TMP Fezian26 Aug 2018 8:05 a.m. PST

I have more to paint, but I'm not (yet) buying more

Ceterman26 Aug 2018 8:40 a.m. PST


Personal logo svsavory Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 9:10 a.m. PST

Yes, a bit.

BrockLanders26 Aug 2018 10:26 a.m. PST

Yes, slowly. Started with 28mm metal figs (mostly Dixon) in 98 and add at least a few every year for Fire and Fury brigade.

BW195926 Aug 2018 10:52 a.m. PST

I still want to add the odd unit but I've got more than enough. So yes ish

Quaama26 Aug 2018 11:59 a.m. PST

Yes. Currently basing figures previously purchased and painted but lying in boxes for well over six months (due to moving late last year and then again a couple of months ago).

About to purchase more AB figures next month. Always looking on the internet for some already painted or 'ready to go'.

raylev326 Aug 2018 1:01 p.m. PST

15mm AND 28mm. ACW (Fire and Fury) were my first love! (Don't tell my wife.)

Blackhorse MP26 Aug 2018 1:32 p.m. PST

Yep. They're just HO plastics, but I took a liking to some of the new Strelets offerings and picked some up.

Wasn't planning on it, and don't really need them, but when has that ever stopped us. Am I right?

Personal logo ColCampbell Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 2:58 p.m. PST

Not adding at present but still have a lot of 15mm figures to paint.


John Leahy26 Aug 2018 4:09 p.m. PST

All those Strelets releases have been a boon to 1/72 scale gaming. I keep adding 10mm OldGlory figs to my other Acw figs too.

MSU John26 Aug 2018 4:19 p.m. PST

Yes, now working on the unusual stuff, like Zouaves and Cherokees.

Personal logo gamertom Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 6:11 p.m. PST

Yes in the sense that the unpainted group is slowly shrinking while the painted group is increasing. Also I can seldom pass up a good deal.

Redblack26 Aug 2018 6:24 p.m. PST

Of course, bigger battles need bigger number of troops

bhall389 Supporting Member of TMP26 Aug 2018 8:17 p.m. PST

Yes, and now in 2 scales…

SAMURAIFREDDY27 Aug 2018 1:21 a.m. PST

Of course….I model in 28mm and there's been a recent growth of new miniatures small Kickstarter ranges , specific for theaters and units, besides the classis ranges, that are fueling my interest to model these unit too…

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP27 Aug 2018 1:49 a.m. PST

No. I have everything I need for the battles I game in 1:1 scale so don't need anything else.

The Wargames Room27 Aug 2018 3:31 a.m. PST

Yes, in 6mm. Another batch of troops completed and more planned.

GROSSMAN27 Aug 2018 5:31 a.m. PST

No, I have 1,000 painted figures can't fit them all on a 6'x8' table.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP27 Aug 2018 6:37 a.m. PST

Oh … I thought this was going to be about reenactors.

Leopold of Albany27 Aug 2018 12:03 p.m. PST

Yes. I can't help myself. I have all of 3rd, 5th, and 6th Corps AOP, and Whiting, Longstreet, Magruder, AP Hill, and Huger for the Seven Days, 15mm based for Johnny Reb III

bobm195928 Aug 2018 4:31 a.m. PST

I went to "the other Partizan" wanting one Union standard bearer….I came home with 10, and 10 buglers….and 20 officers.
I can stop any time I like….
