|Start of my first test game|
|From the other side of the tabletop|
|Two columns on the move|
For a number of the variations Neil Thomas' 19th Century Wargaming book was the source of inspiration.
|Columns advance towards the opposition|
|On the other flank|
All the models in these pictures are old Spencer-Smith plastic figures. Mostly ACW with a few Napoleonic lancers throw in. Conversions have been limited to trimming hats and adding the feathers using green-stuff to confederate infantry and cavalry models.
|The advancing columns meet head on|
|Battle lines are drawn as reserves start to arrive|
- 6 infantry units
- 2 skirmish units
- 1 dragoon unit
- 3 cavalry units
- 3 artillery units
I am expecting to field between 8 to 12 units in a game on a 6x4 foot tabletop. More than 12 and the tabletop can get over crowed with units, and the whole game can turn into a bit of a boring slog.
