|Deployment - the Union are attacking, so their brigades come on turn-by-turn.|
|The lovely Irregular Miniatures 2mm range... complete with my little brigade tabs, and some custom status markers.|
|The homemade 'random events cards' can really swing the tide of battle. These two gave my flanking|
brigade a much-needed punch in close combat. The pictures are screengrabs and quotes from Gods and
Generals and Gettysburg!
|The situation at the start of the battle. My first reinforcement brigade came on one flank....|
|But opting for a risky flank march for my second, I rolled a six and it turned up behind the enemy lines!|
|Another custom card... Colonel Sweeny, commanding the flank brigade, was hit by |
sharpshooter fire but the wound was fortunately only slight.
|So you can see my main attack (to the right) crashing into the Confederate defences, |
while my flanking brigade at the bottom tries to break up the enemy lines.
|Cotton wool smoke makes for such an atmospheric battle...|
Thank you for reading again... I realise I've been very remiss in not keeping up with the hobby community as much as I should, so I'll try and get round people's blogs and say hi. Hope you all enjoyed reading as much as I did playing!
