|General Kinch puffs on his pipe as he dictates orders for the attack.|
I was especially interested to confirm that the business of tracking hits and removing stands with its attendant direct, drastic drop in effectiveness and frontage just doesn't work for me any more , at least not in a solo context. Leaving aside some theoretical qualms, the practical business of bringing troops out and then quickly stuffing casualties here and there to be sorted later as I try to keep the action rolling. Not bad with a dozen stands but with 40 to 50 stands being removed over 18 turns, they can get a bit mixed or lost.
But on to the game!
|About 6 turns in. The Reb cavalry has been sent to probe and "amuse" the Yankee left. They do so well enough to draw in some reserves but are maybe a bit too aggressive with their dismounted attack and also suffer heavy casualties.|
|The infantry soon catches up and the attack is pressed all along the line but is held.|
But first, 10mm Hearts of Tin tomorrow!
