    Much to the wife’s disgust, I’ve been playing with myself in the house again… Here’s a solo game I did a few weeks ago of Sickles’ Salient, using Brigade Fire & Fury 2nd Edition and 10mm figures:

    Great report! Longstreet’s Day 2 assault is an excellent subject for wargaming. If you make it to Gettysburg I suggest walking that part of the battlefield. The terrain looks like gentle farmland at a distance but up close it is a mess, with undulations and crests you could hide whole brigades in.

    Cheers!  Yes, one day, I hope…

    Inspirational stuff. My 28mm ACW project – composed of one box of semi-painted infantry, hours of reading, and many, many day dreams – is based around the section of this action from the Emmitsburg Road to the Devil’s Den. So, this broader-scope game was very interesting indeed.

    You should be proud of the long-term effort required to furnish such a beautiful table.

    The one time I got there as a one-day side-trip from other business, I spent my whole time at that end of the field with my back turned to the triangular field I now spend so much time planning hobby activities around. So mothers, tell your children not to do as I have done. Tell them to spend a week there.

    Cheers Muerto!

    One of the beauties of doing it in 10mm is that it’s not such a long-term project.  Most of the troops, as well as the buildings, fences and walls, were all completed in about three months three years ago.  I’ve slowly added bits and pieces (and all the trees, which are multi-scale) since.  I’m now glad I didn’t invest so heavily in larger scales all those years ago. 🙂
