A revolutionary wargames product... and charity to boot!

 

Hello all!

Okay... remember how, some months back, I mentioned working on a super secret wargames project?  A unique wargames project that was unlike anything ever done before?

Well... it is here!

I want to extend a hearty wargames welcome to Gordon and Hague Wargaming!

This new company, founded by a wargaming and reenacting enthusiast, was created with the idea of making wargaming accessible and easy to ALL folks, painters and non-painters, those with some free time and the rest of us who don't have much at all!

Not only are they releasing a free set of full-color, filled-with-awesome-photos rules, but more importantly they are releasing what I think is the first EVER line of pre-painted, ready-to-go-out-of-the-box (or blister pack) American Civil War wargames figures!

It is a 10mm line of plastic ACW miniatures.  They come in larger "army deal" boxes that are modeled on Civil War ammunition boxes (you can see the back of the Federal Starter Army box to the left) along with "booster" blister packs that you can use to beef up your forces!  They come painted and based, and ready to roll!

The website also has available a number of "extra" products, including a large range of "Army Painter" products, as well as links to all sorts of scenery manufacturers, as well as an entire section dedicated to newcomers and ANOTHER entire section dedicated to Hobby Projects... in short, everything you need to get to wargaming!

And the cherry on the sundae?  They are donating a part of their proceeds to the Civil War Preservation Trust!  The Trust is dedicated to preserving and maintaining Civil War battlefields across the United States, and to educating our people about the great sacrifices so many Americans had to make in order to make our Nation what it is today.  Come on... you can't get much better than that!

So!  Looking for something to stick under the tree for your son or daughter?  Looking to get a Union or Confederate army on the table without spending the next six months painting?  Looking for a one-stop-shop for everything American Civil War?  Well... head on over to Gordon and Hague and pick up some of maybe the most unique wargames project of some years!

Oh, and check them out on Facebook too!

Thanks for spreading the word. If I decide to get involved in ACW, this would be the way for me to do it.

So, it looks as though they come pre-based. - just trying to figure out base size etc.

Hmm, I'll be sure to take a look at the rules, the basing seems compatible with by F&F stuff :)
