In the past I had come across a scenario for the battle of the little big horn for Volley and Bayonet rules, does anyone have a link they can post or a document of the scenario they can e mail me? I have looked and looked and cannot find it.

Email me at johnleahy55atyahoodotcom and I'll send em to you. Ran it before too. You want it in word or pdf? Just let me know.

Could you post the scenario in the V&B as well as the Facebook page?

That sounds like a fascinating use of the rules.

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP27 Jan 2020 5:05 p.m. PST

Sure,I can do that.

John thank you very much for your prompt response and kindness. Fighting the Little Big Horn is on my wargaming bucket list. For those who do not know I am self taught in 3d sculpting and I am working on this. These are 6mm and I have already printed prototypes and they are turning out fine.

Please keep us up to date on this. I am very interested.

Ok, I found the original scenario on the Wayback machine. I made it into a pdf. I sent all the files out I have. I also applied for membership on IO groups VnB. When approved I'll upload it all there.

Your 3D-modeled unit stands are looking brilliant!

Here are the latest images of my 3d plains war project. These are some pictures of printed troops because these are close ups and fresh prints I have not cleaned all of them up yet, but these are turning out better than I expected. The next step is to get motivated and start painting. I plan on using Battles for Empire II rules for these, but know they will work for VnB (Volley and Bayonet) as well. I probably will game with both as I like both systems.

Here are some quick photos I took this morning.


The unit on the left was made with hatchbox filament and came out with lots of stringing, once cleaned they will look much better. The same figures on the right were made with another type of filament and have a lot less artifacts, this is going to be my go to filament for 6mm in the future. These are Indian Warrior foot figures.


These are mounted Indian Warriors, once again note the difference between the 2 filament types, hatchbox the premium filament has a lot more artifacts than the other new filament I am trying. It actually looks worse than it really is though, once cleaned and painted you will not be able to tell them apart. However, as I said before I will not be using hatchbox filament for small scale models any more. This new filament I got from micro center looks and works much better for small detail stuff.


My Indian village, villagers, War Chief and Buffalo herd stands.


Man the close ups make these look pretty bleh, they actually look fairly decent in the flesh so to speak. Once again the hatchbox filament is just so rough looking. There are Infantry in this pic, gatlings, artillery, supply wagons and an officer/leader stand.


Mounted Cavalry stands, pack mules, officers and supply wagons in this shot. Once again all stands are 3cm for the circular bases, 2cm x 4cm for the units and 4cm for the village. Figures are all 6mm.

When I get them fully cleaned up and painted I will post some more pics. I wish I had a resin printer so I could compare that with the FDM prints. In the future I will be getting one, once finances allow.

Nice! Mass of troops. Elegoo Mars is now $229.00 USD on Amazon. That's the one I picked up. I love it. The printing is simple. It's learning about the supports and slicing.

I uploaded all my LBH VnB files to the IO group. I did not create them. I just saved them and played them many moons ago.
