• Epic Battles: ACW Union Brigade

    July 5, 2016 admin

    The most basic infantry building block was the infantry regiment (referred to as a “battalion” in Hardee’s drill manual, which was used by both sides). In both North and South the infantry regiments were organised on similar lines.

    A regiment typically comprised ten companies, each numbering 100 men, supported by staff, drummers and officers. However, the rigours of warfare would summarily lead to a reduction in strength by way of battle, disease and desertion, and a regiment’s numbers could vary wildly.

    The states of the north had a tendency to allow regiments to fall below an effective level, to a point where a number of such regiments would be forged into a brand-new formation. This sometimes had a detrimental effect as units lost their identities and their associated fighting spirit.

    The most common identifier for a regiment was a number and the State in which they were raised – for example, the “15th Alabama” or the “4th Connecticut”.

  • Epic Battles: ACW American Civil War Scenery Pack

    July 5, 2016 admin

    This pack is designed to lend your Epic Battles: American Civil War campaigns with a little extra tabletop authenticity. Included are two houses typical of the period as well as a Dutch Style Barn, largely located in the American Midwest – less than 600 examples are estimated to still be standing today.

    It was amidst this architecture that the North and South clashed ferociously, and many buildings of this nature suffered destruction as a result of such warfare.

    This box contains:

    • 2 x MDF Houses
    • 1 x MDF Dutch Style Barn

    Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
