None of my own work

Last Friday i visited my wargame club,cant get to it that often as its a 4hour round trip,Mad i hear you shout,well its worth every hour on the round.its a small group of lads that meet every Friday in New Buckingham,community centre, Norfolk.The level of game they put on is such a high standard most clubs wouldn't attempt it for a Friday evening with only 5 hours gaming time. As you can see buy the pictures above it was ACW using "Rally to the Flag" (sorry for poor pictures i had forgot my camera so all taken on my Mobile phone)which I'm told by Glen Brooks one of the organizers is a bugger to read but worth persevering with and as with any rule set the club will comprise all you need to know onto a double sided A4 sheet,so by turn 2 i understood them.

The beautiful fencing was made by Steve (Tonnie) and was a dream to game with.

The game itself was overwhelming yank force on the attack against a stopping force of Reb's.he reb's had to hold the cross roads at the far end of the table and the road nearest there deployment area,The yanks got a hard pounding from turn one with the reb force using two 12pound battery's sited on the cross roads which in the end put pay to a yank brigade(Steve) when they just had to many casualties to pass the morale check.The second yank brigade commanded by Paul hugged the table edge and once it had sorted out the traffic jam of union troops entering the game it marched bravely on into the woods and the second road objective,the reb force at the cross roads final failed to hold the union forces and the way was clear to head for the second objective as well but it was going to be a close run thing as the reserve brigade of rebs had struggled done the other side of the table through think woods to arrive in the rear of the advancing union troops and time was not on the union side as the last turn was played the union troops commanded by Paul that had hugged the table edge just couldn't reach the second objective manly due to think woods and sniping and flanking from militia units.A draw was called as the reb's had had a bloody day and had manged to hold the second road and have troops in the union rear.As ever at the club a great nites gaming.Thanks to all.

NB.In June the club are planning a Waterloo game in 28mm,25/30ft table and thousands of figures.hopefully I'll remember my camera.
