The American Civil War or 1861-65 was a war of truly epic scale, eclipsing all previous conflicts in North America. Huge armies, enormous logistical operations and massive battles.

Tactics in the war were still largely linear with regiments frequently firing all their ammunition and having to be relieved by a second wave of troops in support passing through their lines.
Artillery had become yet more frightening, ranging from roundshot, canister, and shell, whilst cavalry no longer dominates the battlefield but are primarily used for scouting.

It would be impossible to offer a 28mm starter set to players that contained enough to wage such epic battles, yet with our new range, we can fill your starter set with 2,400 men, 24 guns and 24 mounted commanders (That’s 24 regiments!) as well as all the bases and bits you need to learn to play the game, along with some beautiful, smaller-scale MDF scenery to boot!

Black Powder – Epic Battles is based on our award-winning black powder rules, with additional period-flavor tweaks and scenarios, designed to make Epic Battles – American Civil War the perfect place to get started with games set in this fascinating period of military history.
