This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Just a few pictures and a brief summary of the "Uncivil Wars" game Mike and I ran at Historicon last night. The game's theme was a union raid to destroy or capture the Confederate ironclad Tennessee. The first picture show the ironclad getting off a canister shot, trying to kill the Union engineers and there damn explosives. Surprisingly, the engineers escaped harm.
Another "whiff of the grape" at some Union Marines - they didn't fare so well.
The climatic battle involved the crew of the Tennessee vs a union infantry regiment that managed to force their way in - this fight went on for 3 turns until the crew was finally subdued and the ironclad seized. While a Union victory it was by a very narrow margin as you can see the LA Tigers just about to try and board to re-take the ship!
We thought the game went very well - I'll post a more detailed battle report when I get back from the con!
