Our NORTHAG Club game yesterday was the Battle of Stones River using figures from my 10mm line and Fire & Fury New Revised Brigade Rules. I used Troy Turner's new scenario with a much simplified arrival and activation table. I also utilized the Hasty Alarm table from the original scenario. The Confederates had little luck from the beginning and the game ended in a clear Union victory. I will bring the scenario and board to Siege of Augusta and Recon and possibly Nashcon as well.














I hope to see you at one of the conventions mentioned above.

Wow! Remarkable set up. Looks superb, I'd love to play that scenario on that table. 😀

Nice looking game. Are the figs a mix of manufacturers?

Most all are from my own range.

The book is excellent as are Cozzen's other two principal works.

You are still the Martha Stewart of the hobby.

We miss you up here in Pennsyltucky.

ScottCon was great. Vince called in so we could abuse him.

Beautiful table, pal.

Thanks Eric, I will make it up for another Scottcon soon. Maybe I will see about Scottcon 2020!

The rivers are excellent. I've only seen this sort of quality with model rail layouts.

Personal logo ACWBill Supporting Member of TMP07 Jan 2020 7:32 p.m. PST

Funny you should mention model railroads. I use many of the same techniques and materials. Thanks very much for the kind words.

Fantastic! I'm currently reading Cozzens' book.

As always, Bill, an excellent game that is also visually appealing. Great stuff.
