I have recently been taking photos for an upcoming wargaming scenario book from my friend John Hill, the designer of the popular new Civil War miniature rules set, Across a Deadly Field. Here are a few photos of my layout for the battle of Pickett’s Mill, a fight in Paulding County, Georgia, on May 27, 1864.
This scene depicts Hotchkiss’s battery defending a wheat field against an impending massed brigade column attack by Major General Oliver O. Howard’s Yankee infantry.
Here are a few more photos which may be of interest.
General Howard massed his division into a brigade column and set them forward toward Hotchkiss’s gun line, which supported Govan’s infantry brigade (to the left of the guns) and Kelly’s dismounted cavalry fighting as infantry (to the right of the guns).
Across a Deadly Field, published by Osprey Publications in the summer of 2014, is a very interesting new rules set to enable the gamer to fight grand tactical battles. It retains some of the elements of John’s classic Johnny Reb 3 but is a stand alone set of rules.
