I’ve set up an American Civil War battle because I wanted to try the Pickett’s Charge rules from Too Fat Lardies|Reisswitz Press. I’ve chosen the terrain randomly, using the Terrain cards included in the Longsreet/Sam Mustafa rules and assigning four Terrain Cards randomly per side.
Chosing a side randomly, the Confederates have to attack. The key terrain feature is the ridge held by the Union (top right), so that is the Confederate objective.
The Union are defending with one brigade of four regiments, all of average size and training, and one battery, and deployed first. The Confederates enter the table wth five regiments, also average size and training, and one battery. Pickett’s Charge is written for divisional or larger size battles, and the heart of the rules have to do with the management of brigades. I’ll try that once I get the basic mechanics sorted.
Confederate general Ginger Purrsival inspects his brigade.
“I need more time and more men. I could march to his flank, and get around him. Then I could bat him around like a mouse and eat him."
How will the Confederates fare? I hope to show you more soon.
Blessings to your dice rolls!
