Yes, they really do look good when seen 'in-person'. I saw a demo game using the first pre-release book a few years back when it came up to Stockton wargames show, certainly captured the imagination of the show-goers. With the additional releases of other periods and armies, plus the terrain book, these are certainly a good option to play out larger battles (or, even, smaller clashes). I've always been drawn to the Jacobite 1745, I believe there's a book from the same chaps on that conflict.

Me to. I知 considering doing the period in miniatures but toying with ideas currently. Drawn a bit to Baccus 6mm or Pendraken 10mm not sure yet. Even Warlord Games plastic 28mm are tempting me. Anyone have ideas on rule sets? I see Agema do a few. Any thoughts??

6mm and 10mm. Embarassed This is where I pretend I don't have huge amounts of Pendraken ACW and Adler/Baccus Naps in my leadpile Laughing

I hardly ever get around to the actual gaming part of the hobby. Last game I played was a big WW2 game using Flames of War (not that I knew the rules), before that it was the Sudan using Black Powder (I like BP, as they're simple and easy to remember - but the other group members don't care for the rules). Had a very enjoyable game of To the Strongest! (Greeks versus Persians) using 6mm Rapier Miniatures.

Never used any of Agema's tabletop game rules, to be honest. Only reason being that I hardly ever play games, so don't own that many rules.

Blooming 'eck! Just noticed the last game I played was February 2018, and before that it was February 2017. I really don't play often Crying or Very sad

- None of the miniatures, or terrain are mine. I was only a guest player.

I agree. I hardly get the time to play face to face games. But I guess miniatures and tabletop games always appeal to me. I知 thinking of ordering two Baccus 6mm armies in the new year.
