    Hi,

     

    Has anyone done a late 19th Century Imagi-Nation project.  I have a load of Old Glory ACW but don’t want to do ACW.  I was thinking of Imagi-Nations so I could Crimea War, FrancoPrussian etc, basiclly 1860s onwards…..thoughts?

    Yes indeed, played a short campaign with a friends units using some very clunky homebrew rules of his.  Twas the Principality of Humdrum vs the Ditherdoo Republic vs Consolidated League of International Territories (yes, you read the CAPS right…).  Allowed us to use whatever minis we wanted painted up how we wanted without having to worry about historical pallets.  Highly recommend the Imagi-nation route as it is very liberating!

    When I lived in Atlanta we ran an alternate US v France/Maximillian 1865-1866 campaign with both naval and land components. Not Imaginations per se but it made for a fun set of battles. As I recall we used the Yaquinto Ironclads game for the naval scenarios and morphed Mexican War battles for the land components.

    That actually sounds really cool!  That would have been a very interesting conflict especially if it supposed the ACW happened.

    It’s not really imaginations, but in my ACW games, I use the same named units over and over again, and they built up a history and gain some additional abilities.

    Union units are named after N-American universities, Confederate units are named after Bourbons.

    So I have the:
    1st Harvard Regiment
    2nd Yale Regiment “Skulls and Bones”
    3rd Pennsylvania Regiment
    4th Princeton Regiment “Tigers”

    Etc…

    I definitely did! We did a campaign, back in the ancient times of 19XX, when I was in high school. A friend and I had a running game where the Ordovician Empire fought a series of world wars against the allied forces of the Silurian League and the Nesebian Republic. It started with horse and rifle and by the end they had primitive tanks and machine guns. Most of it me made up as we went along – in between games we sent each other newspaper headlines from our respective countries’ yellow journalists to get into the spirit of it.

    Eventually, Ordovicia began to collapse and in the ensuing chaos dropped a primitive atomic bomb on the city of Coulondre in the north of Nesebia. We allowed the campaign to end on a cliffhanger.

    A very appealing scenario, and quasi-historical, if you posit that some CSA forces retreat into Mexico,  followed by the Bluebellies.

    Lots of “unusual” international units down there already, and who’s to say others  (i.e., whatever you have) couldn’t be sent in too?

    Anyway,  unless you’re opposed to painting all that blue and gray/butternut, they’d be available if you ever change your mind about doing ACW.
