I set this up so that I can ramble on about my lead (and plastic) mountain, my endless gaming, miniature, and terrain projects, and other

insights into various games.

You'll find lots of 'pretty pictures', various modeling techniques, and hopefully some inspiration for your own lead pile. You're bound to

find something amongst my games and photos that interests you.

Sit back, open a cold one, and enjoy.

15mm ACW: Defend The Train Station

Here was a generic scenario where a Union force is attempting to hold onto and defend a rail station and the rail line. The Rebels would like to break up this rail link and prevent Union supplies from reaching the battlefield.
The Union troops are having a hard time holding their position and trying not to have their camps overrun.

 The Rebels are making a good charge into Union troops already softened up by Confederate artillery.  Several Union units have already routed over the bridge and heading away as fast as possible.

The Rebel yell can be heard through the wheat field and beyond.  Note: you can see several different techniques and materials that I use for fields.  (Lower left: Carpet sample.  Lower right, Green corn: grass/floor/welcome mat.  Center, Rows of dirt: Icky Brown Corduroy material covered with glue and tan flocking on the 'ridges'.  Back, Center: Wheat field from another grass/welcome mat.)
