Hi gents and congratulations on your progress.

Are you aware on iPads part of your site does not display properly? I am on an iPad Pro 10.5 inch and about 20% of this update is not visible on the right side.

Yeah we are aware of that and are planing to update our website within the next 2 months to work on mobile devices too. Sorry for the trouble right now. I suggest opening the link below. It should be slightly easier to view there.

I also reenact the War Between the States and the first set of images I expected out of anyone making objects for a ACW game. Then I saw the second set of equipment and was blown away. Those seriously look damn good. Not fresh, but worn. Worn, but not worn out. Just as a soldier would have been expected to maintain for his uniform and equipment. Well done! Looking forward to seeing more.

Loving that Henry rifle! Which class/regiment/rank/whatever will be able to use repeating rifles like henry and spencer rifles? Also who will use breech-loaders like Sharps rifles?

This game looks really awesome guys. If you guys are looking for any more reference material there is a fantastic but very hard to come by book called the Columbia Rifles Research Compendium It is a fantastic resource for living history and just material culture of the Union infantry in the eastern theater during the Civil War made about 13 years ago. If you can find a copy I highly recommend. Thanks so much again for sharing these great updates.

Cavalry, sharpshooters and the like will get access to repeaters and breech loaders. Certain other regiment of infantry were also issued with these rifles and will therefore get access to them too.

Additional material is always good to have, and definitely needed. Many thanks for the tip, we will be on the lookout for it.
We just acquired a copy of American Military Equipage by Frederick P. Todd, which took over a month to arrive from the US, so we are quite happy that we finally have it in our hands. It is fairly easy to copy stitching patterns etc. from photographs of original pieces, but none ever list the dimensions of the objects portrayed. This is where books like these come in very handy, plus they help with getting an overview over the entire spectrum, which certainly helps.

Wow! A line battle game with more weapon variation! Very cool to see and I must say that I am impressed!
Has cavalry already been implemented and artillery?

Sadly cavalry has not yet been touched. We have the Cavalry Class and weaponry, but we do not have any riding functionality yet. Artillery is implemented already.
