I decided to take a break today. Maybe a 'yay I got my first Covid shot' day or just an 'I'm tired' day but I managed to finish resetting my table with terrain that better matches the contemporary narratives that I've read. I also managed to finally grasp and write down a new rules approach for my ACW armies which has been rattling around the shadowy corners of my mind for a couple of years.
|Waiting for the attack.|
This meant a reset and 'do over' of the abandoned game.
|The quiet before the battle.|
Five turns in, it appears to have the sort of feel I was looking for but its early days yet.
|The end of turn 5. Two assaults on the battery at the crossroad have been repulsed but casualties are mounting on both sides and the opposing lines are engaged along their whole length.|
The end goal apart from enjoying pushing the figures about and rolling some dice is to eventually put together a new generic scenario. But, before I do that, I have to design and submit a game or two for a Virtual Huzzah in May.
