Another game with some of the lads.
This time it was an American Civil War game. More or less equal sides with each player commanding a Brigade of infantry and a couple of guns.
Rules were Black Powder.
This was an opportunity for Brad and Clinton to try out the rules with their freshly painted ACW troops.
|Martin's Union boys awaiting orders to advance.|
|This was the position at the kick off!|
|Rebels crossing the river on their way to taking the hill.|
|General Brad's Texans! With no flag to encourage them forward they refused to advance any further.|
|General Clinton's boys lining the fence.|
|The Union won the race to the farm and soon occupied the area.|
|The hill remained in question as both sides chose to stand back and try and weaken the other with mostly small arms fire before charging over the top.|
|Another look at Brad's Texans. (They did look very nice)|
|From the Union side.|
|Bringing up the big fellas behind the hill.|
|Mr Lee directing things from the middle of a ford!|
|The Rebel centre.|
|The Rebel yell went up as the Confederates surged forward to attack the farm.|
|Shortly afterwards they surged straight back and right off the table! Leaving a great big hole in the Rebel lines. This was to leave the Reb's having to withdraw to fight another day.|
|Union troops celebrating their win over the Confederates.|
