New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • 'Severed Union 1861-1865'

    Severed Union 1861-1865 is the first release by Gordon & Hague Historical Wargames. This game is a tabletop style strategic wargame covering the American Civil War. The miniatures are 10mm in scale and come fully assembled and are pre-painted and are ready for the battlefield right out of the box!

    The game is played using a turn based system utilizing our rulebook that covers everything you need to know in order to relive the greatest battles of the civil war right on your tabletop. Feel free to use our miniatures with other rulesets as well.

    Over time we will be releasing new miniatures for both armies as well as civilian units. We will also be releasing an accessories line that will include buildings, fences, trees, and hobby supplies to enhance game play and your gaming experience.

    This is a brand new company that I just heard about today that offers prepainted ACW army deals in 10mm. They also have their own rule set as a free download on the site. The whole idea and concept behind their product seems great. (I especially like the packaging) It seems it would be great for getting new people into the hobby, buy them a box and they are ready to go. It also seems like an easy way for someone already in the hobby to branch out into a new wargaming era. I am seriously considering putting this on my Christmas list. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for looking!!

      Yes and no.

      Their price points are intimidating.

      But when you look at what you're getting, a Federal or Confederate box comes with 496 minis.

      Painted.

      For $255 I'd say that's not a bad deal.

      They seem to be taking the opposite tack that most other minis companies are - low-priced intro sets set around the $50 mark. I'm sure there are some ACW gamers out there who are able to drop $250 without thinking about it. The question is whether they want to start gaming at 10mm in the ACW for that kind of money.

      As a starter set, I don't love the price point, but I don't think it's outrageous if you're serious.

        I'd also like to know who does the labor. If they're speed painted by a couple of guys in their basement here in the USA, I'm good with that.

        If it's child prison labor out of China? No thanks.

          $255 for painted, ready to go sounds fair. How many hours would it take to paint all those minis and for the cost you save a butt load of time. My downfall is finding someone/group to justify the purchase.

            Thats what I was thinking, especially for me if I wanted to get into a new period but not lose the painting time on my current figures.

            I think one of the cool things is this would be a good product to get someone else into wargaming. Buy a bundle starter set from each side, download the free rules, and invite a buddy over for a game ready to go. All dependent on if you have the cash.... and a buddy

              G & H’s “Army Deals” appear expensive at first glance, but the large sets translate into $3.41 per six figure base (I just bought their Severed Union Grand Army Mega Deal Combo). If the initial cost makes you pause, you have to ask yourself, “what’s my time worth?” As a parent of three busy boys, I no longer have those glorious spare hours to assemble and paint armies. Wish I did, I miss it, but something’s got to give. I can just barely fit in a few hours of wargaming per month. I think the demographics are ripe now for this type of product. I have a few wargaming buddies that are in the same boat as me and fully painted armies are a huge time saver for really busy folks.

                ...you seriously tempt me.

                Favourited it, if it turns out I have friends in the area who are also interested in that sort of investment, I may well go in for it - well, when I have time that is.

                I've always been more into the gaming than the painting anyway.
