Battle at 'Bloody Ridge'

It is after all the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, and one could hardly let this go unmarked without playing at least a few ACW games this year. So last Friday night it was, across Keith's table using Jon's 6mm figures, and yet again my all time favourite rules set Volley and Bayonet.

Here is Keith's account of the battle.

It was a hard fought affair, and one of those games where lady luck seemed to desert the Southern armies at every turn. Mind you, maybe the battle plan wasn't that flash either ('Plan? Plan? We had a plan?').

So enjoy Keith's account of the battle of Bloody Ridge.

    Blogs do tend to be far more ephemeral.

    Kind regards


As yet 'unblooded' on the table top

I've been ill in bed for a week (first sick days off work in 25 years!!) so there's been no painting output, and obviously no games...
