Since 1/160th (the rough scale of a 10mm tall figure) is a whole new scale for me I need new terrain. For my first scenario that means I need to create some roads, a small river, some high ground, and who knows how many trees.

I am painting an army, not soldiers… I am painting an army, not soldiers… I am painting an army, not soldiers…
Here's the beginning of the Confederate force for my 10mm ACW. These, too, are Cracker Line/Plank Road figures. Same quality castings and great service as I received with my first order of Union troops.

My order of 10mm figures from Cracker Line/Plank Road arrived a while ago. Customer service was great. Delivery was fast. The order was accurate. I received 48 infantry figures, 4 figures for a command stand (officer, drummer, two ensigns without flags or staffs), an artillery carriage with 8 (yes, EIGHT) barrels and 4 artillerymen. That makes up a Union Regimental order. The cavalry regiment I ordered included 12 mounted troopers, 12 dismounted troopers, 2 mounted horse holders and 6 saddled horses, 3 mounted command (officer, trumpeter and guidon bearer) and 3 dismounted command (same mix). The only other item I added onto this order was an artillery limber which arrived with 4 horses (2 with riders), the limber and a seated soldier for on top of the limber. This first order will provide the core of my Union army. At least for now.

It's been a long time since I've picked up a gaming project… or even played a game for that matter. But I miss my hobbies so I decided it was time to DO SOMETHING. I have some limitations, though. Things are not as they were.
First, my work schedule and transportation limitations require that I host any games I want to participate in. I simply can't get to other locations at the times that gaming is taking place. Most likely, I'll have to provide figures for both sides. Maybe these will be solo games. Maybe I can introduce some of my co-workers to wargaming.
