Guns & flags for the ACW

Postby ochoin » Sat Jul 22, 2017 10:07 pm

I have quite large Union & Rebel armies for the ACW that I have gamed with only once.

I think a needed refurbishment is necessary before I start to prompt my pals into a few games (using Regimental F&F, I think).

The flags carried by my figures are photocopied efforts from Warflag (free site) & look ordinary. What’s worse is the inaccurate models of plastic guns both side’s artillery units have.

So: who stocks excellent 20 MM ACW flags?

Who carries an accurate range of 20mm artillery pieces?

Musket Miniatures (I think that was there name) are not too bad and mixed well with my 1/72 Plastics. I have most 1/72 brandy arty and its okay, my friend did make his own parrots with ink tubes.

I'll give a plug to Stu at Maverick.

Don't be put off by the stated sizes. He'll upsize 15mm or downsize 25mm by request. His prices are hardly bank-breaking either. Which is nice. :)

Oh nice.

I used some warflags ones myself but was recently tempted to paint my own though I might just do that for Napoleonic's now.

Thanks for the advice.

I'm still not sure about flags & if getting a manufacturer to re-size is the only solution, I think I might as well find good images on the net, re-size to 20mm & use the very expensive colour laser printer at work to create my own.

For guns, someone elsewhere pointed me at Hagen miniatures:

They look good, come highly recommended & the P&P is cheaper than anything from the US.

I have never seen them before so I'll take a look as they also do Napoleonics which is good as I need some fill ins

Downside is they don't do PayPal.
However, one of the organisers is an "internet pal" of mine (known him & emailed him for 15 years): Uwe.
So I think it pretty safe to send credit card details but your choice.
