Wargames can be hell

Finally, battle is joined.

I was a little disconcerted at first to find that various favoured mechanisms proved unsuitable for the task in hand. However, it  didn't take long to resurrect some even older mechanisms and the game is now flowing.

Is it on the right track? We'll see!


  1. Well it looks good, so that's a good start :-)

  2. Looking forward to hearing more . They game does look good.

  3. Ross Mac,

    Looking forward to the complete battle report.

    All the best,


  4. Lovely photo Ross, great to see those Airfix figures on the table again, reminds me of the old Airfix guide to wargaming the ACW, one of my favourite books. There is a new generation of 1/72nd plastic ACW's about to be released by HaT, a set of marching figures (or more likely 2 sets) in fully accurate uniforms including full sized cartridge boxes, all at right shoulder shift arms pose and marching rather than standing. They could well tempt me back into this period :) Would mix very well with the Airfix set.

  5. Looks like things are heating up!

    Best Regards,


  6. Airfix still works for games like this - I still turn up a few Aifix ACW figures when I'm rooting about in the attic.

  7. Hi Ross- Nice to see your vintage AIRFIX for ACW...big battles are good. KEV.

  8. I don't know if it works well, but it looks fantastic!
