fellow blogger, Jay, has but together a 3 battle mini campaign for some 18th Century imaginations action.

Re: WW II ‘Assault the Village’

Lovely table and models and the ambush idea really gives interest and life to play, as well as being quite different. Enjoyed very much, thanks.

Re: Battle of McDowell 1862

Thanks Paul, the situation of additional Confederate brigades feedinging into the battle seems to naturally drive the scenario in the right direction. The system does put emphasis on the attrition of units and the benefits of fresh units / reserves, which I think helps in this situation.

On the table, Kallistra 12mm ACW with Kallistra 4" hexes using my Two Flags - One Nation rules. The blog has notes on the scenario design and an AAR. While looking at the battle, I found a rather nice spreadsheet that showed unit strengths and the types of weapon they were using, links are in t...
