Down at the Wargaming Club: ACW


Some pics taken down at the Rainham Wargames Club.

General Grant (aka Tim) prepares his army for combat.

The Union Army.



Robert E Lee (aka Graham) peruses reports from his troops. They have captured a stock of essential and rare war material: boots.






The Confederate Army.








The generals prepare for combat. Grant does a bit of marching on the spot while Lee girds his loins (what does that mean?) with a cuppa and a kip.


And so it starts. The Confederates get their wagons to the boot-store barn and set up a defensive line which holds off the attacking Union army until the precious items are spirited away.

The war goes on.

  1. The first picture made me laugh. I was have to say general tim certainly looks the part.

  3. I think its analogous to slipping a box in before marching out to the crease, but possibly these days supposed to be taken metaphorically.

    1. Admittedly the generals are a bit ancient but then, aren't we all.

  5. What a cap can do with a person. Put him on a uniform and he's ready for the remake of Gettysburg! :-)

    Nice looking troops!
