1/72 AWI American

Army02
Guilford Courthouse was the inspiration for these and the British.The army deployed in roughly the three lines at Guilford courthouse.

1/72 plastic war-games. Used plastic as there was no way I could afford to do this in 28mm. Happy I did it but will still probably end up doing a smaller force in 28mm. Not organised to any particular set of published rules but from various published orders of battle. Figures are 1/72 plastics from Imex and Italeri with gaps filled with Irregular 20mm metals. Mounted units on 40x40 bases, infantry on 40x30, rest on whatever fits.

  3. Much appreciated folks, they should of course been 28mm to match the British but at over 200 figures a wee bit beyond my means! The plan now is to do some AWI gaming over the winter, hopefully.

    May your dice always be winners
