Wow! That's what I said when I started leafing through it. I just got my copy last week and I have been reading and looking through it all, and I am so impressed with everything. The subtitle of this book is "Skirmishes in the Gettysburg Campaign". All of the scenarios relate to the beginning of the Gettysburg Campaign, which include actions on the way to Gettysburg and the outskirts of Gettysburg. The maps are wonderful, the legends clear, and the scenarios are laid out so nicely in illustrations and directions. I had the opportunity to playtest some of these scenarios before publication, and I enjoyed them thoroughly, but I never saw how wonderful and delightful this book would turn out to be!
I highly recommend this book to everyone whether you've played Civil War skirmishes or not. The scenarios are challening and fun! But I have to admit that the graphics just grab you and make you want to play these actual historical events, especially since we know how well Scott does his research! Great job, Scott and Marek/Janci Design! Keep up the good work, and keep us and new generations gaming! Can't wait for Volume 2!

Is this the scneario book for BaB?

That's the one! I can't wait to get it myself. I play tested a few of the scenarios a few years back and they were pretty good then. I can only imagine how time and trials have honed them to perfection.

John,yes, this is the scenario book for BAB, but can be adapted for any ruleset. nazrat, I don't know if Scott made any changes to any of the scenarios? But as he says in his opening statements, he set these up to be historically accurate, and they are not balanced to be an equal game. I believe the objectives for each side reflect the difference in numbers of troops. As I said before, I playtested some of the scenarios, and they are challenging! If anyone lives near Gettysburg, John Zabawa of Gettysburg Miniature Soldiers, now has copies of this book available.

I playtested two of these some 2 or 3 years ago, and recall enjoying them both. Having all of Scott's JR books,a nd his historical offerings as well, I have to think this book will be great! I will be looking for mine in a couple of weeks at Cold Wars.

Thanks for all the kind words!!!

Volume 2 is in the works, and should be even more fun as the scenarios come from various parts of the Battle of Gettysburg.

I realize this may be a blast from the past, but I have been looking for a copy of this book for some time and cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone know where you can get this book today?
