The late afternoon shadows creep over the battlefield as the sun dips to the horizon.
Rick Dunn is a friend of Civil War Commander rules set author Jim Kopchak. Rick was kind enough to send the Johnny Reb Gaming Society three photographs of his recent 10mm Civil War game.
The patterned “fields” add some visual variety to the background for the wee warriors to manuever.
Many Civil War battles in the Eastern Theater (and for Chickamauga and some other Western battles) were fought on farmland that was relatively open with a few woodlots and a lot of fields of various sorts. I have always been a believer that a sterile green background needs to be broken up, and Rick used a simple way of accomplishing that.
A closer view of the 10mm boys in action.
Thanks Rick for sharing your photos! Your name will be added to the hat to be drawn for a couple autographed copies of my books for your reading pleasure over the long Northern winter.
