Picture/map for a friend. You should be able to get the Google co-ordinates from this.

I came across this ruleset on the interweb today (actually yesterday or maybe it was the day before).
I found it intriguing so had to read it up. It seems to be a medieval/ black powder intermix with an interesting basing scheme as well as eye-catching scenery.
It gives me something to put all those unused sprues towards, and boy do I have a few of them. I could probably put together two or three (maybe even four) themed armies together from my plastic/metal mountain which obviously helps the budget.
I grabbed a figure from the bits box to experiment with the painting style.

I painted up a couple of units using the Wargames Factory Infantry offering. I bought a few of these in days gone bye and inherited a few more when my best mate passed away so they lay gathering dust for a while.

Here's an EPIC ACW Cavalry unit, mounted, using Kallistra 12mm figures, four bases of 5 figures making 20 figures for a full sized Cavalry Regiment. Each base is nominally 60mm by 20mm but mine are cut down to 55mm by 20mm which minimises gaps between bases particularly on Infantry Regiments.

In my last post I mentioned the left flank figure on the command strip whose rifled musket projects over the end of the stand when they have been clipped to 55mm and can interfere with the placement of a neighbouring stand.
You can see it here:
It is not as if I haven't been busy but I feel as if I haven't got much done. Life has been full of home decorating issues, new gas boiler, X-Ray visits, ECGs, Vaccination visits and a Birthday to boot.
I have got somethings done and here they are.
Kallistra 12mm Confederate Cavalry, mounted. I bought 2 packs and borrowed a few figures from a command pack giving me two cavalry units, 20 strong each and foot command figures left over for £15. Go compare that with the Warlord price. Maybe slightly heavy on the yellow facings and lace but they are what they are. I have clipped the Warlord 60mm wide bases down to 55mm.
Flags, gravel, flock, static grass and tufts will follow in due course.

I have some information on suggested unit sizes for those of us who are (or will be) painting furiously.
Infantry Regular 5 stands default setting
Infantry Large 7 stands
Infantry Small 3 stands
Infantry Tiny 1 stand
Cavalry Regular 4 stands default setting
Cavalry Small 2 stands
Artillery 4 gun 2 stands
Artillery 6 gun 3 stands
This will reduce my perceived requirement to purchase additional command strips or construct them with alternative figures.
