Blue Gray Alliance, Battle of Gettysburg 150th Reenactment photos, McPherson's Ridge

This weekend, I’m down in Gettysburg to attend the Blue Gray Alliance 150th Gettysburg Reenactment.  Fridays morning’s scenario covered the 1st day of the battle including, Buford’s stand, The Railroad Cut and McPherson’s Ridge. Unfortunately, I arrived a little late for the reenactment because I made the five hour drive down from Central New York this morning. I arrived just after the Unions 1st core’s infantry entered the battle. I thought this was a great opening reenactment, and I’m very excited for tomorrow’s events. On to the photos.

Welcome to On Campaign with General Bt Sherman 2.0 on Blogger

After two years of having my blog hosted by 6sided, I have decided to transfer to blogger. I had a very positive experience with 6sided, but I was concerned about the long term future of the site. So, I decided that now was the time to switch over before my blog got any larger. Over the coming months, I will be moving into several new periods and I will have a lot more on my ongoing 10mm ACW project.

 Thanks for visiting and happy gaming.

Painted: Buildings in Turmoil, The Widow Thompson House

Today, I have a few photos of my newly painted 10mm Thompson House from Buildings in Turmoil. During the Battle of Gettysburg General Robert E. Lee used the Thompson House as his headquarters.

Painted: Buildings in Turmoil, McPherson Farm

I have begun work on my Gettysburg games. The first two scenarios will cover the morning and afternoon fight for McPherson Ridge, Seminary Ridge and Oak Ridge. In preparation for these games, my first priority after getting my dismounted Union cavalry painted was to start painting my 10mm Gettysburg buildings from Buildings in Turmoil. At first, I was a little intimidated by all the fine detail that these models have. But in the end, I ended up painting them just like all my other 10mm buildings and I think they turned out great. Below are a few photos of my completed McPherson Farm. Next, I will be working on the Thompson house, McLean Farm, and finally the Seminary. I will post photos as I complete them.
