About those new Warlord Games ACW figures....

 After breaking the internet in the last couple of weeks, the debate about how big the new Warlord Games ACW figures actually are shows no signs of abating, even now they are in many peoples sweaty post-festive hands as part of the cover-mounted sprue on the latest WI edition. 

I've actually got no dog in this particular race at all, as I already have a somewhat oversized collection of mostly original-Pendraken 10mm ACW forces for both sides which are based for Fire & Fury and are compatible with the armies of my mates with whom I hope to be playing large games at some point in the future... 

..but the legend that is @Petetentacles from Bangor has got hold of some of thenew Warlord Games figures, painted them up and photographed them next to Peter Pig and 10mm 'new' Pendraken - and here they are: 


From left to right these are : Peter Pig 15mm / WG "Epic Scale 13.5mm foot-to-eye but somehow also claiming to be 15mm too" strips / Pendraken 10mm  / WG Epic Mounted Officer / Peter Pig Mounted Officer.

I am reliably informed that all of the infantry are based on the same Peter Pig plastic 40mm x 30mm bases. The WG cavalry are on a on base supplied for the figure, the Peter Pig one on a 2p piece of similar depth.

Ta-dah!

(Enterprising folks are already selling the WG sprues on eBay. Here's an Affiliate Link to the UK listings, from which I might earn a few pence commission if you buy anything after clicking it).

Photo Galleries back online

The 15mm Ancients, 10mm ACW, 10mm WW" and "Real Vehicles" galleries are now fixed, upgraded and secured...

If you are using Chrome as a browser you may still see a Google security warning before accessing the 10mm/Real Vehicle galleries, which I've requested be removed now I have done the update - so it should hopefully be gone in a few days.

(I also managed to "find" a lost database with more information that was originally included in the 10mm Gallery, which it now appears I managed to lose by making a typo in one upgrade cycle... so, if anyone out there knows about how to merge the contents of two SQL database tables, do let me know!)

Gettysburg

I was recently lucky enough to get some spare time in the US and took the chance to do a quick visit round Gettysburg battlefield

I've taken a load of photos, (rather unusually) as a pedestrian tramping across the park on a gradually brightening up Saturday afternoon in October. They have already appeared on the Madaxeman facebook page, but not everyone sees that, so here they are again:


They start from around Meade's HQ on Cemetery Ridge, follow Picketts Charge (in reverse - or retreat I guess), then go along the woos on Seminary Ridge, recrossing towards The Peach Orchard and Wheatfield and up to the Pennsylvania Monument back at the top of Cemetery Ridge.

What surprised me a little was how shallow the slope was at Cemetary Ridge that the Union chose to defend, but also just what a bloody long way across the terrain Picketts Charge was too. Big and Little Round Top looked like proper "impassable" hills as well, although I didn't have time to go up them.

FOUR voting and rating systems now online..

Madaxeman.com has gone Voting Crazy with FOUR separate online interactive rating systems now operating, for 15mm Renaissance Figures, 15mm Ancients Manufacturers, 20mm Moderns and now, 10mm ACW Manufacturers.

All these pages feature comprehensive manufacturer listings, links to their sites, an online rating system you can vote in, and details of what ranges they carry (apart from the ACW one, where of course they all have both Union and Confederates - and you don't need me to tell you that I suspect...).
