Peter Pig 15mm figures
Peter Pig is one of the world's leading 15mm figure manufacturers.  We make 6000 different figures and models.  These are distilled into   1800 (15mm) packs. Every range has an associated set of rules. Also, there are related 15mm scenery ranges to accompany the figure ranges.  In these days of wandering measures of sizes into 18mm, 12mm and other sizes close to 15mm; Peter Pig has remained true to the 15mm ideal.  These other sizes are often an attempt by a manufacturer to create a market  for just their peculiar size. It is also used by sculptors who cannot work well with the 15mm size restriction and so need extra size in order to create acceptable sculpts. Peter Pig will continue to do 15mm wargame figures.  We will also constantly return to each range in order to carry out updates and additions.
Thus we have  15mm ranges with longevity and future potential.

Range 7  ACW riverine

Hammerin' Iron an overview of the range

The ships are all built to a scale of 1/600th. They are designed as robust wargames models.
This means they should withstand some rough hands.
The ships are all waterlined. The ships are quite thick in their waterline but you can sand them down as much as you want to make them sit lower in the water.

Most ACW ships had any masts removed when in riverine actions. The masts were replaced by single pole masts for flag display etc. We DO NOT provide these pole masts in order to keep costs down, but do give indentations at the correct places on the models if a customer wishes to drill out the hole and put wire in. We can drill the holes and provide the wire for an extra cost (£2). Contact us by E mail and we will do the extra drilling and supply the wire or even glue it in of required.

Each ship is provided with the appropriate funnel castings. A lot of the ships use our universal funnel casting which needs to be trimmed to the right size. The funnel supplied is quite long in order to allow for customers who drill the original funnel hole deeper in order to create a super strong hole for the funnel. Any ship with a universal funnel will have a mm (millimetre) figure beside it, which indicates how tall the funnel should be above deck level.

Ships boats
Most ACW ships had lifeboats. These were often towed behind in order to avoid cluttering the deck and gun arcs. We DO NOT provide lifeboats with the models in order to keep the costs down. Lifeboats are sold as a separate pack (pack 13). These boats can either be surface mounted on the model, or two holes drilled and the boat davits dropped in to those holes. WE can do the drilling and fit boats for you at a cost of £3. Contact us if you require this service.

Rules, scenarios  and accessories

The first version came out 20+ years ago. This 2011 edition uses many of the earlier mechanisms but now includes a scenario generator, more ship statistics as well as fire rafts, torpedo boats, mines, submarines and forts. Excellent. The rules include order cards and play sheets. No additional books needed. Gives a really nice game in 2.5 hours or less. Tim has put the wire spine on them to allow the book to be laid flat when gaming.

Hammerin' Iron rules

Sheets and download scenarios

The D6 +x tells players how many hexes in from their edge to place each ship.
e.g given "Monitor, Governor Moore D6+1, D6-2" . Means that the Monitor is placed D6 add 1 spot hexes in from the table end and the Governor Moore is placed D6 +2 spots, hexes in from the table end.
