I recently purchased the board bame 'Battle Cry' which is based upon the American Civil War (ACW). I really like the game system, which is similar to Memoire 44 and Command and Colors. That said, I have never been a fan of board games and thus I have decided to play Battle Cry on the wargames table using 20mm figures. I had a huge stock of Airfix ACW troops and I plan to use these.
Battle cry has a unit of four figures for infantry, three for cavalry and the same for artillery. I have decided to have four stands of figures for my infantry, three for cavalry and one gun with crew to represent a battery.
For the infantry I will need to create 40 stands for each side, 9 cavalry and three guns. I have made a start. Here are my Union forces:
Union Artillery - more than I need for the game
I have also made a start with the Confederate (CSA) forces:
CSA Artillery - again more than enough for the game:
The table will be laid out the same as the board game using a cloth marked with 5" hexes. Scenery etc will match the game, but will be three dimensional. More updates to follow.
