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.
Play Testing Fire & Fury Brigade: The First Day at Gettysburg
Yesterday I got invited over to Rich's house for a play test of his revised Fire and Fury: Brigade rules, which is coming out in a new version (hopefully by year end). With the base unit being a Brigade, one can play rather large battles and that's what we did - the entire first day of Gettysburg in 15 mm scale.
Of course, Rich's tables are really things of beauty - the second picture show missionary ridge across the the top and the town of Gettysburg at the bottom.
I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. I commanded a division form the Union 11th corps and lets just say my generalship was "off" - I got my butt kicked but had a blast. I also got to meet another local gamer which is always a plus.
The Brigade level rules are similar but not the same as the regimental but I really liked them. It was really fascinating to see a"whole Battlefield" play out in front of you.
My defenses crumble against the onslaught of Early's division.
Hmmm, I wonder where the confederate attack will focus on?
