Several months ago I rekindled an old love affair with DBR. Our love had grown cold and I had spurned her as she went through pone of those odd unlikeable phases, but there she is again, resplendent in her glory. Several weeks ago now I was invited to a four person game at Keith's place, with Keith, Brian and visiting Australian Roger.
Keith and I each fielded 300 points of Royalists while Brian and Roger did likewise with Parliamentarians. I had forgotten that I had these photos, all taken from the Royalist side of the table. The intervening weeks have meant that my memory is vague on the details, but the battle didn't end well for the Royalists.
Anyway, enjoy the photos. I certainly enjoyed the game.

First game in a few weeks, a mid week game with Adrian in the new (temporary) games room, and it was a 15mm ACW game fought using the 15mm ACW armies. Lack of time and so no real AAR, just a selection of random photos.
An interesting game, with my VnB skills rusty with disuse.. but great to get the boys out on the table top.
|Union troops advance into a town sector|
|A regiment of Union cavalry. These boys soon dismounted and fought through the wilderness|
|Facing off across a river|
|The gap in the line was the result of a failed morale check.. those M4 troops eh!!|
|The centre ... while the Union line looked solid, the battles on both flanks had gone to the Confederate forces. Withdrawal was in the offing|
