The next hard copy issue of Charge! magazine will contain Sgt. Chris Maes’ long anticipated add-on rules for Johnny Reb 3 covering combined arms, with a focus on riverine and coastal naval operations. These suggested rules, known by the colloquial nickname for sailors, Jack Tar, allow the traditional Johnny Reb 3 gamer to add in warships, ironclads, cottonclads, transports, and other watercraft to land-based JR3 games. Rules, charts, and suggestions are included, as well as a sample scenario covering the attack on Fort Fisher in North Carolina. Watch for Issue #17 in November 2007. Hard copies will be mailed to all current members of the Johnny Reb Gaming Society by the middle of the month. Elctronic copies will be posted on-line at www.magweb.com in early 2008.
Why not try out these new rules over the winter and pick up a few ship models from your favorite wargaming dealer?
