Contemplating historicals

Sitting here trying to wrap my head around historical wargaming. I’ve decided to give it a go after quite a few years of trying to motivate myself to actually do it. I have settled on two time periods, either American Civil War or Zulu.. or both.

The ACW I have been looking at would be with the Black Powder rules by Rick Priestley and Jervis Johnson, published by Warlord Games (LINK), with 6mm miniatures from Baccus wonderful range (LINK).

As for the Zulu period I will most likely go with Sharp Practice from Too Fat Lardies (LINK) with miniatures from Wargames Factory (LINK)

Now I just have to decide on basing and all the other small choices you have to make. Going in to historical wargaming is really a daunting task.
