Being somewhat new to ACW gaming myself, I wrote a post discussing the difference between gaming with regiments versus brigades as the maneuver elements.

nothing earth shattering, just something for newer ACW players to read or anyone who likes discussing wargaming and scale.

Stew,

That is a great write-up. I played the original Johnny Reb and loved it so I grabbed F&F a few years before the RFF came out and it did not feel the same. I believe RFF is what I need.

Still play JR2, very much prefer the Regimental to the Brigade size rules, I just got a bigger table and more figures and play the Fire and Fury games with regiments !

thanks for reading and comments!
I've never played JR in any version so I can't comment. I remember being told that you had to swap out the stands with other stands with less figures on it to show casualties, which seemed like a lot of work to model…

and of course, if you have enough players and bases and a big enough table you can totally do huge regimental scenarios. : )

Sometimes Stu it's just a case of improvising, we stick a small plastic counter behind the unit for each casualty and then take a base of when you reach the right no.
