Highlight of the gaming came last Sunday when we had a trip to Entoyment in Poole to play a Black Powder ACW game of the Battle of Fredericksburg. Panjo, Nathan, my son Christopher and I all went up and played with several other like-minded
|Hood's Division stands ready to see off Billy Yank|
|Early commanded the far right, waiting on Stuarts cavalry|
|Damn Yankees just kept on coming!|
|Longstreet's Division goes to sleep in their sunken road.|
|Union troops filtering through Fredericksburg|
|More yanks crossing the river, there are a lot of cavalry over there!|
|That's not gun smoke, it's Longstreet's troops having a cigar break!|
|Stuart finally moves forward....a bit|
|Pickett's Division is holding against ever increasing odds|
|Oh look, there is still nobody attacking Ransom's Division!|
|Finally Lee(not the General) springs(wanders) into action!|
Lucky timing though as it enabled the fresh, well rested, nicotine charged troops to roll up the flanks of the attacks to both sides of them and win the day.
All in all it was a cracking day with great company and a fun scenario. Thanks to Paul and Carl for letting us play with their troops and putting on a great game. More thanks to Pete and Entoyment for hosting us. I can thoroughly recommend a visit to the shop as it is an Aladdin's cave for wargamers! Extra thanks to all the other gamers, even static Lee(not the real one)! 😉 Good to meet you.
