Last Sunday Craig, Gary, Bern and I met down at the Vikings Club for a Black Powder ACW game. The scenario was based on the Battle of Iuka 1862 in the new Black Powder supplement Glory Hallelujah! (pp. 136-137). Bern and Gary were the Confederate commanders with two brigades defending a road junction. Craig and I were the Union commanders with three brigades and our objective was to hold the road junction by the end of turn seven. Here are some photos of our game.
There was a bring and buy day at the club in the morning so we started our game after lunch. Despite rolling two blunders (one of which actually worked to my advantage) I had good luck most of the game. In the end despite stubborn and determined Confederate resistance, the superior Union numbers told and we were able to hold the road junction by the end of the game. Craig and Gary provided most of the lovely Perry ACW figures. Thanks to Craig, Bern and Gary for a fun game.
