We had 8 players this week so enough for 2*standard (24 points) and 1*larger game (32 points) games. The scenario was from the rules - capture the hill and hold until darkness. The game has a random end-time so its risky to plan a specific number of turns.
Game 1 - Steve vs John
This was the bloodiest of the games with both players throwing the majority of their forces straight at the hill.
|Union troops advance
The Confederates were first onto the hill but were swifty attacked by the Union forces who managed to capture the hill before being thrown back then finally retaking the hill.
|Damn hard fighting on the hill
A close and action-packed game saw the Union taking the spoils.
Game 2 - Roy vs Adam
Both forces stayed out of sight until the Union plucked-up courage and crested the rise at one end. Neither side was able to capture the ridge, but the Feds had the better of the shooting and caused the greater damage.
|Union first to the hill
Game 3 - Nigel vs Stu / RichardIn the final game two different plans were in play. The Union forces hung back in cover hoping to move late and grab or contest the hill only in the last few turns. The Confederates looked to get their best shooting units onto the reserve slope whilst the aggressive units turned the right flank through the woods.
|Rebs attack through the woods
