Brothers Divided contains a dozen scenarios from the early part of the Gettysburg Campaign. Designed for company or skirmish-level gaming rules such as Brother Against Brother, this book is currently out of print but will be reissued later in 2014 by the publisher, Marek/Janci Design of Wheaton, Illinois.
Watch for Volume 2!!
The Enduring Valor: Gettysburg in Miniature series remains my most popular wargaming scenario book for obvious reasons – the innovative and fresh full color graphics layout by Ivor Janci, the first detailed breakdown of the Battle of Gettysburg into regimental-level individual scenarios for Johnny Reb III, and the incredible array of dazzling photographs by various gamemasters of their troops in action. Volume 1 covers the beginning parts of the fighting, with a focus on Day 1 and the actions at the extreme southern part of Day 2.
Enduring Valor: Gettysburg in Miniature, Volume 2 covers the fighting at the northern end of second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, including the Confederate attacks on Culp’s Hill (pictured), the Louisiana Tigers’ assault on Cemetery Hill, and the attack on Cemetery Ridge. it also features Pickett’s Charge, which can be an entertaining wargame (especially for whoever commands the Yankee artillery!!!).
Undying Courage: Antietam Campaign in Miniature is a collection of Johnny Reb 3 scenarios for the battles of South Mountain and Antietam during the September 1862 Maryland Campaign. Scenarios also include one for the battle that closed the campaign, Shepherdstown. Refight the dawn attack on the Cornfield, the desperate assault on the Sunken Road (“Bloody Lane”), Irwin’s attack on the Dunker Church, Burnside’s Bridge, and the rest of the battle.
The publisher is planning to reissue these gorgeous full color scenario books!

Some early reviews of Brothers Divided: Skirmishes in the Gettysburg Campaign…
“It is a beautiful book! The graphics are wonderful. They just pull you into it all. The maps are great and the scenarios just make me want to play them immediately, especially since they are historical. I hope that you have lots of sales. I really believe they should draw even more people into playing skirmish games and particularly Brother against Brother. I think this kind of game could draw more younger people into wargaming. Your scenarios provide a lot of gamers with a new reason to play the games. I hope that you continue to do this.” JM, Pennsylvania
“The lay out is very nice full of color pictures and big print easy to read. The color key maps are well done and the scenario maps can easily be deciphered to make a game set up very quickly. The pages are much better done in this book than his past books as the binding does not interfere with reading the map or scenario information…There is a lot of historical information in each scenario as to the reasons behind each encounter and what happened, so besides playing a game you learn a bit about Gettysburg that is not mainstream such as a scenario about Little Round Top or the Wheat Field.” BM, Pennsylvania
“The book is fantastic; I love all the illustrations, it really is a lot more fun to look at, as a miniature collector, than some boring “this square is an infantry formation.” LA
Scott, at last Ive found the website fot Mike Percy’s 20mm superb ACW figures.Check out the SGTS’ Mess on yahoo.They are part of the SHQ range but not the larger originals Regards Phil
Scott, I purchased your “Brothers Divided” scenario book at Historicon 2009 and really like the layout. My only comments are that the OB’s for the scenarios are a bit large for Brother Against Brother games and are heavy with cavalry. BAB is basically an infantry rules set with cav & artillery as an “extra” bonus. Having been playing BAB for sometime, I find that in the 25-28mm scale, any more than 10 squads of any mix on the table becomes cumbersome. Again, I’m sure the scenarios can be downsized and maybe infantry substituted in place of the cav. Anyway, good start and I hope your second book is more infantry orientated as BAB is intended. I’ll be at “Huzzah” in Portland and look forward to meeting you and maybe get my book signed. Thanks for your contributions to the wargaming hobby.
