|A Re-enactment of the Battle of Olustee, FL|
The nifty challenges this presents is that it is Florida winter terrain. I was born in Tampa, Fl, so I have a good idea about it. Plus, there are a lot of re-enactment reference photos to get it right. The board I will be making might have some swamps. I will also have the fun of modelling southern pine trees that I cannot just buy. I will have to figure that part out along with the scrub brush that would be the pine barrens. So there are a lot of interesting terrain choices to consider. It will be fun!
To top that, I have a huge amount of troops to paint. I want to be able to break down forces for a 6 player game. I, also, must consider whether or not I want to break down the game into a four part game or a one shot deal for multiple games. Either way, I plan on have quite a few figures. I had already bought 13 regiments worth of infantry for Sash and Saber in 28mm. The cool thing is that we convinced the owner to help support our project, so I will try to go above and beyond like usual.
The last thing I have to consider are the rules system to use. The easiest would be to use Black Powder. However, I want to look through Pickett's Charge, Fire and Fury, Devil to Pay, and other rules. Maybe, Jay will share his Hallowed Ground rules. The mission is to get a rules system that does not have the possibly to bog down when played. If I accomplish that mission as well as put on an awesome Civil War game, it will be awesome!
