I am getting back into ACW using the excellent 10mm Pendraken range of figures after a few years absence. I have played previously in 2mm, 6mm, 15mm, 1/72 and 28mm scales  Shocked

So any recommendations for rules, I have and have played Fire & Fury v 1 and v2, and want to try something different with the regiment being the basic unit and with base removal for casualties, I have looked at Bonnie Blue Flag any opinions on this set, anyone played it, your thoughts, also looked at Pickett's Charge rules as well.

So whats everyone playing at the moment

Black Powder from Warlord Games, using the “Glory Hallelujah!” supplement. No removal of figures, looks great, feels right, 20 general army lists covering each year plus eastern and western theatres as well as specific lists for prestige formations like the Iron Brigade, Hood Divison etc...  it’s all there.  Wink

A Hundred Circling Camps. But I think a real blue-and-grey nut would find many serious holes in them; it's not a major period of mine.

My opponents never play well. I was unlucky/the rules are unfair/I was off form/I felt sorry for him and let him win....

Old Smokie,

Hello Mate, I have a ton of 10mm ACW that I am off loading.  I am going to 15mm purely because I was gifted a load and my club play 15mm not 10mm.  I have b oth side, painted and unpainted.

Let me know if you are interested.

I would also recommend Black Powder from Warlord Games, using the Glory Hallelujah Supplement.

Take care

Likewise, Black Powder is good, but you will need the supplement for period colour.
