ACW Miniatures
10 MM
Cracker Line Minatures offers a great selection of
10mm ACW figures designed to portray troops in the
Western Theater of the War.
Bill also offers 10mm ACW figures to portray troops
in the Eastern Theater of the War under his Plank
Road line. Previously known as Star Fort figures,
Bill’s company Good Ground acquired the range,
which the Cracker Line figures were originally
sculpted to match the Star Fort line.
Owner of Cracker Line, “ACW” Bill Moreno,
commissioned a talented sculptor to create figures
based off of paintings by some of today’s most
popular Civil War painters.

Architects of War (AOW)
have created their own line of
metal figures to accompany their
American Uncivil War rule set.
The figures are designed to give
players unique sculpts to represent
the colorful characters they have
created for their American UnCivil
War rules.
The creators stated that they
designed the line to be compatible
with other popular figures on the
market. Despite this compatibility,
the AUW line does offer many
figures that might stand out in the
regiments that see service on your
table top - as the advertising above states they have figures“tall, young, old, fat and short.”
For more on these figures, see the review in ACW Gamer Issue 4.
Sash and Saber Casting has been providing 28mm and 40mm
ACW figures for several years now and they remain popular with
ACW minature enthusiasts.
Owner and sculptor Chris Hughes brings a character and
animation to his figures that make them unique in a market of ever growing ACW figure ranges. Chris also takes
pride in his attention to historical accuracy in both equipment and poses.
For more on Sash and Saber Castings, see the interview with Chris
Hughes in ACW Gamer Issue 4.

ACW Miniatures
Trident Miniatures offers some excellent figures for a gamer get started in 40mm gaming. The figures reflect great
realism and attention to detail. If you are not planning on 40mm gaming, then you might want to consider these
for diorama or display purposes.
Trident Designs has big plans for their ACW line. Future figures will include more figures in the frock coats, along
with Texas hats and Kepis so you can create Hood’s Texas Brigade. Artillery and cavalry are planned for both sides;
including some unique cavalry such as New Jersery cavalry, Rush’s Lancers, and Virginia Cavalry.
