Today, we had a go at Regimental Fire & Fury in 15mm as Steve Clarke and I have been building up enough forces for a battle.
Steve C set up a board with a Confederate supply base being defended by infantry and guns as Union troops attempt to capture the town and its supplies.
Here we see part of the supply base with Confederate infantry moving up to support the front line troops
Union troops enter the table - cavalry
And infantry in some strength
Under the watchful eye of their commander
The Confederate general spots the enemy advance
and his first battery in prepared positions are ready
another position is ready to be manned
and infantry man a hastily constructed barricade
the second artillery position manned, infantry occupy high ground in reserve
The first shots are fired
And the first casualties caused
The Union cavalry move down the turnpike on the left
As infantry advance through the fields
Union infantry advance under fire
some are broken and retreat
Union guns move up
and one brave battery deploys within canister range of the Confederate defences
Union troops attack the hill over on their right
with support coming up behind
in the centre, a second Union battery deploys with infantry in extended lines ahead and besides
but fanatical Rebels roll in from the Union right and defeat not one
but two Union regiments, in one fell swoop destroying the attack the Federals had spent time building up
The Union commander decides to pull back his remaining forces for another day.
This set of rules seem to suit 15mm ACW perfectly for us and we will carry one with these for future games.
