Hi Guys
Stan and I played the fourth game in our LONGSTREET campaign.
The date is now 2 March 1863 and the Union forces have had the better of the fighting winning the initial battle in 1861, losing early in '62 but bouncing back to a victory in late '62.
What follows is the After Action Report for game number 4.
Rawlins' Brigade was moving moving again in Confederate territory.
The Virginian countryside was yielding good supplies for the foraging parties. The new regiment (the 44th NY) had arrived as had the Rifle armed US 2nd Artillery. The 1st Minnesota had joined the Brigade back in late 1862 but hadn't fought at Damp Wood. Their Colonel had requested they lead the next attack the Brigade might be called on to execute. Little did he realise that Brigadier Rawlin had already identified the Regiment to be his main effort for the up coming battle.
The Brigade was tasked to secure the crossroads at the small town of Broadfordsburg.
As the scouts arrived back at Brigadier Rawlin's HQ is was apparent that they would have to attack the Confederates who were deployed behind a walled farm.

Thanks for posting, Scott. As you probably saw elsewhere on the forum, I'm looking at getting into Longstreet with some 15mm Confederates that I've had lying around for a while, so it's great to read about an ongoing campaign.

Hi Tyler
I've been considering building a 18mm army using Blue Moon miniatures.
If I was to do it I'd base them on Fire & Fury bases.

Ill get back to you but if you've played 'Age Of Eagle' its the same.
Then again, 40mm x 30mm is a good option also.
Its just there are probably a swag of F&F ACW armies already out there.
