The man cave saw another game this weekend. James came over , we did some more planning on mynext new project (more soon) and we took the opprtunity for a game. As I now have a Confederate brigade I thought it might be good to get the their first game in.

I just set a simple scenario that used two Brigades of Confederates - one veteran and one green, against one Union Brigade - which for a change from out previous games was mostly veteran and crack.
|Union deployed in the centre holding the hamlet and the hill|
|My new boys from Alabama - large untested "green" units|
|Confederate artillery gets to work|
|The Alabama boys advance!|
|The confederate second brigade arrives|
|The Union forces blast away one of the Alabama regiments , but the 37th carry on with a rebel yell|
|Union artillery in a daring move advance in the centre down the road|
|The Alabama boys try to stave of a Union counterattack..|
|the veteran brigade struggle under fire crossing the creek ..game over boys...|
Another good game was had. It really made clear that the quality of your troops makes the difference. The new green Confederates all ran in the end .. the Union veteran and crack troops made it look easy.
A good game. I will continue to add to this collection over the year. it does look very good I think on the table , and with a relatively small outlay overall is worth keeping on with.
