Fire & Fury feels right to me for ACW. Haven't done any in a while but this blog will get me motivated to get stuff done, hopefully.
I started off with loads of Minifigs then Essex but was heavily into Polly Oliver (what happened to them?) before I temporarily stopped collecting ACW
F&F needs a larger table than I can manage but, as I have opted for Peter Pig's standard 5' x 3' table & adopted "short inch" rulers (basically, measuring sticks calibrated to 2/3" segments) I now have the equivalent of 7.5' x 4.5' & can happily secede from the Union. http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/fireandfury/ is a good group for discussion & research. I still plan (in my deranged mind) Risorgimento armies using the F&F variant Fire & Furia Franchese. I can dream, can't I?
