Tthe figures were painted from several sources, Martin painted some, I painted 3 units of zouaves for martin, and he bought some already painted.

the rules used were Foundry's From bull run to Gettysburg. these were odd rules, which really trivialize morale, cover, and artillery. it was fun rolling dice and shifting figures around with friends, but we all thought maybe next time a different rules set is in order. unfortunately i can't really do a battle report because the confused nature of the rules keep me occupied enough that i forgot to make mental notes. not that I usually remember to do that anyway...

Martin and I, along with our friends Dan and Jon try to get together every 2 weeks for a game. The next game however will be in 3 weeks, as Dan and I have a rev war reenacting Drill weekend on scheduled weekend.
