The Flag of the Fourth Texas

It's been a little while since I've done a post, so a quick update to whet your appitites for the forthcoming campaigns.
  • The Two Splendid Lines campaign is on hold for a few weeks.  The next battle, Antietam, requires six regiments so I have a lot of painting to do! 
  • I'm writing a series of linked games for Battlefleet 1900, where a team of players takes command of a single ship and leads it to glory.
  •  There's a 40K campaign in the works, using 2mm models and rules based on our Cold Steel super set.
You want pictures you say?  Well, how about the regimental flag of the 4th Texas.  My very patient mother (who still helps her 26-year old son with sewing all his costumes together) made us a very nice homespun regimental flag.

The Battle of Second Manassas

Welcome to the latest episode in our Two Splendid Lines 6mm campaign.  This is a series of linked battles, following all the battles of the Fourth Texas through the Civil War.  We've already fought Eltham's Landing and Gaines' Mill, now it's time for Second Manassas, or Second Bull Run as it's known up North.  Roll call, for the officers of the Fourth Texas Infantry...
