Great to meet fellow LAFfers, Vodkafan and has.been, at Bash Day last Sunday! And a bunch of other good people too. My report of the convention is here:

Thanks to the organisers & referees.
I found everyone friendly, which is nice.
Vodkafan and I both purchased a copy of the rules (good sign).
In fact Flatpack has offered to lend his 15mm ACW troops so that our local gamers (The Regulars  :D) can see the rules in action.
Pictures & AAR when we get to play.

Looking for an introductory game? Can I suggest my First Bull Run scenario in BBB groups files?
If you fancy something larger, the Fencibles have enjoyed the Shiloh scenario by Chris many times, also in the files, last I looked.
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

Good suggestions, thanks, Vincent. I definitely endorse Bull Run - I've used it as an introductory scenario myself. Cedar Creek is another small manageable one. These and a bunch of others are in the 1861 folder in the BBB group files (you have to sign up but it's free and easy to leave again when you want):

Soooo….
Found out my old 15mm ACW figures, in a metal toolbox, like we did in the old days.


One layer of confederates..


And one layer of federal troops…


I’m sure we can get a game with these.

I also found a little scenery that I tarted up.
Some basic gun emplacement, went from this…


To this…..


I also found a couple of buildings.


Which I started to improve.

Those look great, Bob! Such nice armies don't deserve to have been gathering dust for so long. If Bash Day has helped to get them into action again, I'm very happy! I hope y'all have a good time at Bull Run. Looking forward to pics and AAR.
