Preparing For War!

Recently we bought Warlords Glory Hallelujah!, hoping it would give us some motivation to paint and play with the 6mm ACW models we all have in varying states of readiness.

A nice book, which will help me personally as I know very little about this period. As a group it will give us some pre-written scenarios for us to play. As a result we picked one of the smaller battles to give us a target to aim for to start with. As there are 2 of us per side, we've then split the 2 armies in half again so that none of us have too much to prepare!

So here are a few of my recently painted additions:
This may look odd, but all will become clear below! 
See! Makes a regular sized unit into a large unit! I may end up doing more of these if we progress further into bigger games as the Confederate forces appear to have a few large units.

Everything I've painted since returning from holiday adds up to this: 
A whole new Brigade! I've now got the painting of these down to about an hour per stand! The longest time is waiting for the PVA to dry once they are based...

Almost the complete force:
I have one more command stand to paint, and the comedy banner I made will be reduced in size to a normal command banner... And that's my part of the Confederate army for the Battle of Wilson Creek complete!

Now, I know Matt has been painting, I wonder if either of the other 2 have...

  1. Very good! How much is needed from your Confederate Compatriot?

    1. I think its 2 commanders, 9 bases of infantry and 1 cannon. I have no idea how much he's done though!

  2. When I last spoke to him about it he said he was hovering around the "zero" mark.

    1. I thought as much. We could just play each other!

    2. It may come to that. Check the rule book scenario I keep waffling on about!

    3. I would need to buy and paint 1 more infantry unit!

      You need to have done 4 commanders, 11 infantry, 2 cannon and 1 cavalry. I think.

    4. Yep, you're right, although one of the union regiments starts the game in skirmish formation, so I think that's possible withh the models I have. Just need them to be painted.
