I've been toying with an idea with a Mechanicsville scenario. To that end, I've made a counter set of all of
Porter's V Corps (Army of the Potomac), AP Hill's Division and DH Hill's Division.

The rules are still in flux, and I can't seem to find pictures of 2 Regular Army brigade leaders (Lovell and Buchannon).

Here are the (double-sided) 1/2 inch counters:

Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but figured it was kind of nice for OB purposes (and there are some mistakes in this one as well as additional forces that did not fight the historical battle).

One positive thing this project has done is that I've started compiling a database of civil war head pictures (of generals etc) for use in future projects.....

Army of Northern Virginia, Seven Days

With the Army of the Potomac already made, I finished the Army of Northern Virginia for the same time period.

Here is the first look at the Army of Northern Virginia in card form (there are errors in it that have been corrected):

Army of the Potomac, Seven Days

Since I'd  already made the map (it took a day to realize from start to finish), I figured I might as well go "all in" and compose DSROHG unit cards for the two armies that fought the battles there.

A little research and some elbow grease later, voila !

Here is the first look of the Army of the Potomac in card form (some errors on these):
