Will try, Keith. However, it might be a little while. Mrs. Wife bought the new computer for my daughter and me (no, you guys that are thinking, my daughter and I - not correct) She bought it for us, but Mr. Husband is expected to pay it back. Fair enough, it wasn't a cheap one. So...figure buying might be out of the question at the moment.
Whenever I get the chance I'll try to get some figures for the introductory scenario in the rules book just to get started.
I would be interested to see the results of your use of 3mm figures. I use mainly Peter Pig 3mm for some of my ACW battles, also using 2/3mm buildings and 2mm railways and rolling stock. It does give a nice integrated look and a ‘real’ looking army.
