More American Civil War Action


This is a small game w played last Wednesday night a the club. I had based the terrain around the 1865 battle of Hatcher's Run, around the Dabney's Saw Mill. The terrain has been set for the actual site however the number of units and figures are not quite correct. Our battle involved three brigades of infantry on both sides, with two batteries of artillery each. The game still made for a very good game using a combination of RRF and Fortune & Glory.


We also used figures from all the lads collections with the majority coming from Dave Lowes's ever growing collection. So please enjoy.

Awesome! looks like a lot of fun and gaming. Great miniatures and painting, interesting to see you mount 3 figures and not 4 or 5 per base? I guess the 3 figures stands are for visual appeal and irrelevant to the game rules set you are using?

Thanks for the comments. No the three figures to a base was more to save on the costs of our army and to get the most out of an order. Normally we would love to have 5-6 figures to a base.

Dave,

Your lads preformed admirably that day and would say that you would have been very proud of them.

WW2 this Wednesday if you are able.
