Alan Spencer from the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) club of Texas tried out a solo game of Altar of Freedom. He chose Shiloh as his battle to fight using 6mm figures. Here is his battle report.

Very nice looking game! I wonder how he handled the bidding process?

I am currently busy painting up 6mm armies for these rules so would like to know how they were played solo.

Lovely pictures, although I ma going to have to think of how to ditch those labels for something less obtrusive.

@John Leahy
I handled the bidding process for the time clock with both CinCs bidding 3 every turn. This meant SAJohnston was just the micro-managing units later until he joined the fight.

As for the corps, I put in all of Grants bid first, based on what he could see, then the Confederates (which were basically every corp for themselves).
