Last week we visited our good friends Keith and Fran in their new home in Devon and Keith and I played the first game in his new wargames room. We played the opening clash of the First Battle of Bull Run in 1861, using Honour Games' Longstreet rules. It was such a good game that we played it again right away. See the battle report and scenario here.
Keith's ACW collection only started last autumn when he moved house. It is already an impressive force, combining figures he painted from scratch and units bought off EBay which needed a little titivation. He has also invested in a Cigar Box Battles playing mat, which looked very fine with some polystyrene hills beneath it.
I have played wargames for five decades. Recently retired, I have even more time to devote to it. More about me here.
