We just ran Chickamauga at NJCON and we are looking for a new scenario to try. My Bro-in-law has the Devil's Den rock kit so we though we might try gaming this sector of Gettysburg. Is there any published scenario, Order of Battle, Maps, or aids to help in this quest? The game will be played in 15mm, using Regimental Fire & Fury.

Has anyone gamed Devil's Den? Think it would make a good convention game?

WI did it a copy of years ago and several of the other miniature magazine have done article with OB in them. the Zourve had a great color one with full OB and Maps.

For the the battle of Gettysburg order of battles there a few that would recommend. the First being THe Great Campaigns series The Gettysburg Campaign by Albert A. Nofi. There is also the six books on Gettysburg by Osprey order of battle of series. They break the battle up by side and day with a lot of good maps but may be hard to get a hold seeing i think they are out of print

I thought there was a round top scenario in the RF&F book?

We played out the Wheatfield at 1-5 great little game. We only play specific points now sooo much more fun. we have done Gettysburg so far Baxters Bde day 1, Devil2 Den, the Wheatfield, little round top, next is the Peach Orchard.

Thanks everyone for the info. Stosstruppen, the Round Top Scenario is brigade scale, not regimental. Would need an OB to convert.

for Gettysburg I use Brigades of Gettysburg for OB's and Gettysburg The Story Told with Maps from Stackpool Books.

Do you happen to have a copy of or access to Avalon Hill's "Devils Den"? Nice map and a couple of scenarios that can be combined into one large one.

the two reference i listed are at regimental level. the Nofi books also has a good job listing the cannons that each battery had if that helps
