I've just posted this great little scenarios to my blog. You know the kind of thing, so simple a child can follow it. And that is just what this scenario was originally made for C.S.Grants first game, presumably with his dad, back in 1958. "Chance Encounter at Sawmill Village".

I've changed it a bit, because the guys I've done it for, well it's NOT their first game.

For anyone wishing to use this for an introductory game: Originally both sides got to choose six units from a list of ten or so units (a mix of infantry, light infantry, cavalry, artillery units; the same list for each side). All entered by their allotted road, order of march being noted prior to game start. Other changes I've made to the scenario are noted on my blog.


It's good to be playing games, without having to play solo, again.
Hope you like.

I've run that scenario using my 28mm SYW individually mounted figures. It went very well.

Nice looking setup! I have that book on the shelf nearby. Haven't looked at it in years. Need to do so.
