Epic ACW and back to some Bolt Action

The blog has been quiet for a couple of reasons - house renovations mean I don't have a hobby room ready yet, but also it's been busy and I have fallen out of a blogging routine. However, I should keep it up if for no other reason - it helps me keep track of projects!

I finished enough Epic ACW to run a Kernstown battle scenario in Black Powder in a couple of weeks with some new gaming buddies. Here they are:

960 Union infantry with guns and cavalry:

Plus another 600 Conferates:

I have also fell in with a weekly Bolt Action group, and have so far managed about an even record of winning and losing (actually more draws than anything else yet). But this has inspired me to do a few new models to reinforce my Soviets:

And I am still doing ASOIAF - even though I have nobody to play it with, here are the Boltons (Neutrals)



  1. Just don't forget your old gaming chums! We are still here. If you get both forces done for your Song of Ice & Fire, you can teach them & maybe they will jump on board.

  2. Old chum Terry - I have 6 factions of ASOIAF now - 5 done - but only so much gaming time. I think that is the real constraint. And I have to say - London is a great gaming community!

    1. WOW sounds like you've gone all in on the ASOIAF system! Nice & even better yours are painted! Have you found a good store sourcing them there? You should also take a trip to Hamilton to visit the Lion Rampant game store.

  3. Oh Lord that is a lot of tiny ACW guys! Good for you!

  4. I'm glad you're settling in at your new gaming environment Dave!
    Are those "epic" miniatures more 10mm? They look bigger than 6mm.

  5. Somebody essentially help to make seriously articles I would state. This is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far? I amazed with the research you made to create this particular publish extraordinary. Fantastic job! spanish american war service files
