One of the Tier 3 project ideas I have is 15mm AWI. I think Empire V will be took much for this period and the quick game goals I have so I purchased Black Powder for this project. The Paint and Chat groups I have been linking to lately suggested I get the AWI update for BP called Rebellion and I am glad I did. It contains so much information about armies and uniforms and the battles. Its a great resource.
I know Peter Pig and Blue Moon make the best 15mm AWI figures but at this stage I am moving to my other Tier 3 project of 15mm Crusades next as the figures are a good break from painting Napoleonics. Orders for AWI will be placed in a couple of months.
