Doing Antietam with Elephant

Post by John Thomas8 » Thu Jul 11, 2013 11:55 am

This one has been bugging me for years, even during my hiatus from the hobby. Using Scott Mingus' Antietam Army Lists I've figured out I need 308 stands of CSA infantry and 539 stands of USA infantry to do it, along with 41 batteries for the CSA and 50 for the Union.

The problem comes in when setting up the units. Far too many CSA regiments are single stands at 1:100, while several Union brigades would be 25 bases strong, albeit filled with raw troops.

Gonna have to think this one through. I have time, though, since I only have about 100 bases of infantry and 10 bases of arty done.

Still having come to grips with the disparate regiment/brigade sizes. Gonna have to ask for some help with that one.

Inventory says I have 113 CSA and 117 USA infantry bases ready, about 33% and 20% respectively for those types of troops. Two years to paint up what I have on hand for all troops types and I'll be ready to go, September 2015.
