Antietam 2016 Refight

Hi Guys, My best intentions were to set a project to refight various engagements of the Civil War on the actual date (s) of the battles. So far I've managed a few. The first outing for my figures was last year on the anniversary of Antietam 17th September, with a Cornfield based wargame. This year I...

Gettysburg Day 1 Refight

Another set up this time identified Brigades and Command, the unit movements and sequence of play was more accurate to the historical events. First time added label markers to units and it made it easier to follow the real battle without having to refer to separate sheets. The various Brigades and B...

Re: Gettysburg 1st July 1863

More photos of the action, for some reason these didn't attach. The Iron Brigade advance to McPherson ridge and reach the objective ahead of the Confederates.

Cedar Mountain re-enactment 1862

Selection of photos of a second game for the Yankies and Rebs to fight it out, now all based and flocked with command figures. Ended with a fair draw with heavy losses on both sides, the foremost brigades suffering withering fire with exchanges of volleys at close ranges with casualties of 60%. The ...
