Re: AAR: Elephant at Desert Dune, 13 Mar 14

This played really well, 10 turns in two hours and 7 minutes, 23 minutes faster than game time scale. Early card draws favoured the CSA, but turns 7-10 it swung way to the Union and the only saving grace was I was able to roll enough PiPs for Pond that he could order all his forces (except Turn 8) T...

AAR: Elephant at Desert Dune, 13 Mar 14

Great to get John back out (and even better his wife is getting better). This evening's tussle was an ACW fight, General Lew Wallace's division vs Pond's Brigade of Ruggles' division, on the left of the Confederate line on Monday morning at Shiloh.

Lancashire Games

Was out looking for PTO natives to do up a company of the Australian/Papuan infantry that fought on the Kokoda Trail and found that these folks do up a nice variety of poses, both for the Australian officers and NCOs and Papuan privates. An unpainted 1:1 company was 99gbp, painted 225gbp. That's 134...

Re: AAR: LFS at GA, Blunder On The Danube Part 2, 27 Feb 14

I did find, after sitting down to write up the game, where I got a bit confused and thought the arty just ran when contacted. That happens only when there's no supports.

AAR: LFS at GA, Blunder On The Danube Part 2, 27 Feb 14

Part One can be found here . (clink on the red text) Ok, so Greg came out to GA with his kit and we picked up at Turn 8. We made one reset, halving the French heavy cav casualties as we had played them incorrectly in Part 1. Still 25% down, but not permanently shaken. Here's how we laid out the init...
