Some of my friend John Bobek`s games using Grand Manoeuvre Napoleonic paper armies:

I don't know if I care for them at all. I'd actually have to see them on the table.

I think i would prefer totally abstract.
Wooden kriegspiel style rectangle blocks with symbols.

Very nice table! I've dabbled with paper mini's, as well as being a huge fan of card stock models of castles, bridges, and other buildings, both in 28 mm sizes, and even 54 mm sizes. I mount my buildings on 3 mm thick cardboard, to make them durable, and table-proof (mostly). My approach takes considerable time, and effort, to finish.

Paper models are not fast, nor easy. They tend to take a fair bit of time: print; cut out; fold and glue; then mount on a base, of some sort. They can be quite a bit of work, actually.

These photos remind me of the 15mm Nappy games I participated in, back during the 1990's. Brings back memories. Thank you. Cheers!

My pleasure Sgt! It`s nice to get people to enjoy what they see here. These are 6mm though and although I`ve posted close-ups here, they look best at a range of 3ft and even when better en masse!

Just saw this page in my list of referrers for yesterday..

I`m thinking of making some rules available for the ACW armies pack… they have had some testing… i may slip them into the armies pack at a later date and/or make them available as a small ruleset for a small fee (they only exist as playsheets right now maybe experienced gamers would get the hang of them quite quickly?
