First unit to go was surprisingly Hessian riflemen, caught between 2 units of continentals who moved up before firing, then followed up with a charge which routed them totally. All in all a fun solo game and I remain very happy with the overall look of things.

I do intend to make a new board, but I keep putting it off as I know it's going to be tough going marking out all those 55mm hexes. Occurred to me that I could even extend the size of the board by a few hexes each way for fighting bigger games...... I just wish there was an easier way to do it?
Some more of the 20mm ACW's I'm painting for John - we have below Union Revielle set, 5th New York Zouaves command group and 3rd New Jersey cavalry- the 'Butterflies'. I'm now working through the 14th Brooklyn Regiment with red kepis.
|14th Brooklyn - currently on the painting desk.|
All below for the collection of 'Old John' - 20mm scale.
