not saying anything, just saying :)

Obviously no offense taken. I just managed to pick up the two books on the cheap at the last G+ auction.

I've no problem looking over the rules, but unless there is a real incentive to switch, it'll be easier to continue with WMA simply because that's what our forces are configured for.

Dave - PM inbound.

Ok because I really meant none. Just inserting my rather strong opion of everything. Ill look but not touch haha :lol:

I also thought most of it was for 28mm stuff. Know you can scale stuff, i hope to see all you guys at Acon and hope to have time to visit.

I've been reading stuff mainly on TMP that HC scales fairly well to all the different miniature sizes. Heck, it actually scales quite well with our style of basing since there are 4 different sizes of units, Tiny, Small, Normal and Large (or something like that) For our purposes you could have 1/2/3/4 warmaster stands for a unit of respective size. Yet more multitasking for our minis. That being said. Rich is running HC demos/games at Adepticon if we want to give it a shot.

Baccus is in. I also got a pack of ACW7 (Infantry, Shell Jacket, Hat, Formed) from their ACW range. Now where'd I put those WMA ACW rules?

Don't worry, mine are safe on my hard drive. You can nab them from here if you can't find them.

Noted. Those are the ones I made copies of before. Im pretty sure I still have them somewhere around here. Those are Yanks arent they? I always wanted to make the Iron Brigade, myself. It has units from 2 states I have lived in. Michigan and Illinois, Not counting the numerous times I have traveled through Indiana. Not claiming anything right now, just saying. :lol:

The figs? I'm no expert, but they're painted as bluejackets on the baccus site. I would guess at 6mm scale the differences between the union and confederate troops are negligable. The fact that all the Baccus ACW stuff is together with no allegiance seems to support that.

AHHH, have not looked at the site for ACWstuff in a ling time. I suppose that would make sense, there really was not a huge difference,in uniforms on the whole. Zouaves early, and the worn look near the end of the confederates. A lot of differences are in caps.

I may try to get to Little Wars the week after Acon and see what sales they have at Scale Creep. One year the pre=packaged Baccus stuff was greatly reduced. Between that and the 28mm WW2 stuff on the cheap Im looking for, it may be worth the price of admission on Sunday.

I have to finish the bases on Red/Blue Air Cav Company's infantry, and paint Red/Gold Company (Valks and infantry) up from a basecoat. I hope I have enough Sepia - I may need to get some of the new one.

DONE!

Last company, which I can't help but think of as Company Espana (sorry, too lazy to go in and figure out how to add the tilde. Or for that matter the accent mark in tilde)
