Yes, I have dived into the World of American Civil War – and in another scale… 6mm.

Over the Christmas break I took a look at some new game rules and liked the look of “Altar of War”. I downloaded the rules then the Eastern battles supplement.

You can see the site here.

Example from a game using “Altar of Freedom” rules.


I put an order into Baccus and 4 days later my box of figures arrived…

The figures look crisp and clean and with plenty of detail. I am really looking forward or getting these mounted on their 60x30mm or 30x30mm bases and painted up.

It is a brigade level game allowing you fight all the battles of the American Civil War on a maximum of 6×4 foot tabletop.

I ordered enough for a small to medium game to get to grips with the rules.

Here are some pictures of what turned up. Battle packs of infantry (20 brigades for each side with 28 figures on each 30x60mm base), enough cavalry and HQ units for all size games and 8 artillery units for each side (about half the amount needed for the biggest games). Plus the thin laser cut bases and some packs of flags for the banner poles. At 6mm it is going to be the colour schemes, hats and flags that identify units!
