Took yesterday and today as flexi days. With the big ACW game coming tomorrow I wanted a bit of a rest before and a nice leisurely preparation with no panic and stress. Yeah…as if…
First off, the walls and fences took a LOT longer to do than planned. But they are done and packed and ready:Then I sorted out the Order of Battle for both sides. I’ve got loads and loads of ACW. There was no problem there! Yeah… as if.. I was short 5 Union command stands, 2 CSA ones, a CSA corps commander, two CSA guns and a Union caisson! But with full day yesterday, focus, and just sitting in the attic listening to music (KFL, Van Der Graaf Generator, Levellers, Sabres of Paradise, Rogers Waters) I got them all done!Corps command stand.Two more command stands.CSA guns.And for the Union: Three stands for the Irish BrigadeTwo others.And a caisson I need as ammo supply marker.Not bad for a days work!
I’ve also done labels for all the units which stick on the bottom and the coloured strip folds up at the back of the base.And this morning I laid out the table to get a feel for what it will look like: I will need more fences!!! I have another 3 meters of MDF to make up so that will help!
So tomorrow I will meet up with Iain, Dave, Simon and Ken to do battle! What could possibly go wrong!
