Belgian wargamer and long-time The Miniatures Page member Patrick Roovers stopped by my 15mm Johnny Reb 3 miniature wargame last Friday morning at Fall In! as I was explaining the scenario prior to the commencement of the die-rolling barrage. He snapped the photo below. It captures many of the players, several of whom are long-time members of the Johnny Reb Gaming Society. The table is temporarily devoid of incoming troops (Cemetery Hill in the distance is crowned with Orland Smith’s brigade of the Union XI Corps and a New York artillery battery). Soon, the borough of Gettysburg (at the lower part of the photo) will be crammed with a morass of retreating Union soldiers, fleeing in two columns down Baltimore and Washington streets).
My thanks to Patrick for granting permission to the Johnny Reb Gaming Society to use his photo (I had forgotten my camera)!
