Historic Imagination is proud to announce the release of This Bloody Field: Regimental Wargame Scenarios for the Battle of Shiloh.

Stock Number: HI009
ISBN 13: 978-0-9904122-7-4

The Battle of Shiloh was the first truly large battle in the American Civil War's western theatre, and the largest until Chickamauga the next year. With largely inexperienced troops, the two sides faced each other and knocked each other around until one withdrew from sheer exhaustion. Try your hand at the gaming table and manage the chaos of untried and untested combat troops thrown together and pitted against each other in a fight to the death along the Tennessee River!

These scenarios are designed to be used with almost any American Civil War regimental level set of rules. Rules are included for figures based on 20, 30, 40, 50, and 100 historic men per figure/stand. Times are given for 10, 15, and 20 minutes per game turn. Maps are in full color, as are the numerous color photographs of the modern battlefield.

Scenarios include:

Confederate Onslaught
Sherman Attacked!
McDowell vs. Pond
The Crossroads
The Peach Orchard
The Hornet's Nest
Bull in the Cotton Field
Duncan Field
End of the Line

And a full order of battle!

Available at, other online retailers, as well as your local gaming store (with the ISBN numbers above).

This book is on sale as a digital download at


Also available is its companion book, Shiloh Wargame Maps.

Design your own miniature wargame scenarios for the Battle of Shiloh with this comprehensive map book. From small unit level maps focusing on a specific terrain feature such as the Hornet's Nest, to large maps encompassing huge areas of the battlefield, this book gives you the freedom to make the game you want to play.

This book contains 50 maps in scales ranging from 25, 33, and 50 yards per inch. A detailed Order of Battle is also included. The final section showcases modern photographs tying everything into the actual terrain on the field.

This book is only available as a digital download at


I had a lot of fun putting these two books together. I hope you have just as much fun fighting these scenarios, or designing your own.

I should note, Wargame Vault is down for maintenance this morning. I'm sure it will be back up soon.

Thank you everybody. I hope you all enjoy it.

Shiloh is one of those battles where there was more often than not continuous fighting all along the line. Or more accurately, one (more or less) continuous line from one end to the other. So it made it tough to break up into smaller actions sometimes. There is always bleed-through to other sections of the battle. This leads to larger battles than I might normally focus on. But I think you will enjoy them.

I learned a lot about Shiloh. Obviously. I've come to a much greater appreciation for the battle. I honestly can't wait to visit the battlefield again.
