These Union zouaves are welcome to  fight on my tabletop any day! WOW! Remember, these are 10mm figures, and they are painted to the level and quality of a 25 – 28 mm figure! I am so jealous (and admiring of Pawel’s talent!). Great job!

Some old photos from my website – The Peach Orchard / Wheatfield

Geocities is taking down all their websites, so I will lose my website for the Johnny Reb Gaming Society. I copied over a few of my photos from that site. The above photo shows Union III Corps troops passing through a small Maryland town en route to Gettysburg.

More Civil War games at Historicon 2009

WVL and Hcon 010

An impressive looking woodlot in miniature graces this tabletop terrain from long-time Cleveland, Ohio, wargamer and rule system designer Jim Kopchak, author of Civil War Commander. Jim’s layout of the Battle of Averasborough, North Carolina, drew praise, and I played in his game on Friday evening. It was exciting, and we Yankees marched across the fields and took two lines of Rebel entrenchments in a series of charges.

Pickett’s Charge in 15mm at Historicon 2009

IMG_2253

Major General Dorsey Pender‘s division approaches the Emmitsburg Road south of Gettysburg under heavy artillery fire in this 15mm game of Pickett’s Charge.  The Bliss farm(extreme top of the photo) is in ruins, with the house and barn now smoldering ruins after being burned in the morning by the order of Brig. Gen. Alexander Hays.

The scenario was adapted from Enduring Valor: Gettysburg in Miniature, Volume 2 by Scott Mingus. We had thirteen players for the game, which was designed for only eight. Because there weren’t enough games today apparently, there were far more players than open slots for most of the games being run.

I think most of the players had a good time, but as usual with huge Johnny Reb 3 games, it’s tough to coordinate sides of the table, especially with so many gamers. Still, I am glad I put on the game.
