I Hate You Little Wars TV – 1st Manassas (Bull Run)

There I was, happily minding my own business, preparing some World War 2 1/285 scale aircraft for painting, planning then to move on to my 6mm Anglo-Saxons, and then perhaps off to something nautical, perhaps 1/1200 scale galleys or modern vessels when Little Wars TV presents First Manassas. They show the battlefield, then discuss the tactics and Gen. McDowell’s performance. Just have a look at this.

Now I am getting an almost uncontrollable itch to paint 6mm American Civil War figures. Of course, to do that, I would need to purchase some 6mm American Civil War figures as I do not have any in the lead pile. English Civil War, Ancients, Napoleonics, World War 2 and Cold War figures in stock aplenty but no American Civil War figures. I have several sets of rules on the bookshelf, lots of reference works but no figures.

I hate you Little Wars TV. I must resist!

    Hmm, seems comments were switched off – now back on … obviously 🙂

    There is a setting I can see in Chrome but that I cannot find in WordPress App. Anyway, comment away!

    I have been watching the Little Wars TV, Antietam, and spent part of my sojourn home, lost in the US Library of Congress photo archives, and creating some 3D models for the battlefield. So this post is a little signpost that my focus on ACW for the next 6 months or so is off to a good start. Now if I could just find a good set of rules I am happy with…ohhh and to rebase my Confederates to match the Union.

    3D models of the battlefield? Are you 3D printing them? How big are they? Now I am curious to see.

    I saw that video too and instantly started thinking in 6mm too.

    Yeah, the buggers have me thinking the same.
