ACW extravaganza!

Last year ended with a bang. I was invited down south for a huge ACW game, this game was played out on over 55' of table which was rammed with figures, absolutely thousands of them!
I wont go into to much detail here as the event should be published in next months Wargames Illustrated.
The host was David Marks, also present was wargames royalty in the shape of Jervis Johnson. Which was handy as we were playing Blackpowder rules. There were roughly 15 wargamers present, some I knew, most I didnt. It was a great day but also a long one for me and my good friend John, he arrived at my house at 0430 for a nice early start. We finally got back into Manchester at 0130...
Heres a few pics to give you an idea of the scale of this game

in the corner you can see my thin blue line, my Zouves became legends holding off attack after attack

  1. Great looking game Steve. I will have a read up when WI arrives.

  2. It looks like it's nice, but the pics are so small it's hard to tell exactly.
