I have however, been reading back issues of Wargames Illustrated, I have a subscription that allows access to the vault, which in essence is being able to read every issue back to number one published in 1987. I have currently read up to issue 36 and have found some fascinating articles on all manner of subjects for every period in history.
An article in issue 31 dated March 1990, really grabbed my attention. Written by Paul Wood, it describes the first day at Gettysburg as well as giving an excellent account of the action, it contains a number of hand drawn maps, that can easily be created on the wargame table and a full OOB.
When I decided to collect 6 mm ACW figures from Baccus, it was always my intention to fight the large battles of the war, hence the small scale. This article has rekindled that desire. I will no longer have a wargaming room or even a large table to battle on, but will have to make do with a small kitchen table, when it is not in use of course. By fighting the battle, day by day, and section by section, I will still be able to fight the whole battle.
Seminary Ridge, with what appears to be 28 mm figures.
I do have in 6 mm, the Lutheran Seminary building and Cemetery Gates, both iconic landmarks of the battle. I also have plans to play out Jackson's Shenandoah Valley campaign too, the planning for that is quite well advanced. So even though the painting and gaming has come to a short halt, the research goes on.
