Excellent scenario.

Beautiful models and great report.  I like your Confederate aeronef. Is it a scratchbuild? 
This is my boomstick!

Wow, thats a huge game, I had fun trying to work out all the different makes of figures on the board. Some I recognise ;) (Never thought I'd see David Crockett on Atlantis lol)

Looks like it was great fun.

Once again, thanks chaps :)

Soaring Gunners - thats the one! I knew it was something like that! The best I could think of was flying shooters and I *knew* that wasn't right!  lol

Doomsdave - Nope, it's not scratch built. I got it off eBay from PMC games...

Malamute - most of the irregulars came from my 'early west' collection. At my count there were 2 Bowies, 2 Travis' & 3 Crocketts when the game began!

Smashing report there V_lazy_dragon - it looks like it was a really fun game! Who knew the Atlanteans flew giant insects? Strangely though, there are giant insects in that part of Atlantis, and people who look somewhat like the Sanwar... I had forgotten.

I love all your 'worky bits' - the Tesla coils, aeronef and steam-walkers are great, as is the landship. But I especially love your little town... 'New Atlanta' eh? Let's see the Damn Yankees burn this one down!

Shame about the youngster Jez - we had taken a few Brits along just in case you could make it.

However, there's always the next battle as the Prussians and Science faction push further in to the heartland.

I'm hoping to get 'in' on the next big battle.

I assume it's an invite only thing though?  :(

Ooooh!

Well I'll be making my first VSF purchases at WMMS!

Be they British or Anarchist, I am undecided.

Perhaps both!  :D

If you can make it to Bristol, you're more than welcome to join in fighting back against the prussian incursion into the heart of the new confederate homeland! Atlantis

Not sure when that will be, but PM me if you're interested....

Bloody marvellous stuff chaps and probably the most detailed report I've ever come across   :).

I've had a couple of those PMC nefs sitting in my cupboard for years and recently put one together, glad to see I got it right!

Sooooo much eye candy I'll have to go through the pics again!
Dont!

Great Report, lots of character and flavor of the period.
