Tactical/Regimental-level Napoleonic Wargames?

There seem to be quite a few difference tactical/regimental-level Napoleonic wargames.

The Casualties of Wargaming

Here is the situation at the end of the first turn of my game of the Battle of Eylau (The Coming Storm by OSG) - note the shot-glass chit holder over on the bottom-left:

The next image shows the first casualty of the battle - my beloved shot glass chit holder. A careless elbow saw this flying…

Three Days of Gettysburg - Situation at 3pm, 1 July, 1863

Here's another composite image of the situation at 3pm, 1 July, 1863. Rodes' Division has struck against the Iron Brigade (and Wadsworth's Division in general) north of Gettysburg. Initially Cutler's brigade on the left attempted to hold their position against Rebel shock attacks, but, they lost three out of four results (shock combat really favours the attacker); and so the Iron Brigade decided to withdraw before shock combat instead of risking losses. They'll slowly pull back to the town…

Little Round Top – 1700-1800 hours – ‘Race for the heights of Little Round Top!!!



This continues from my earlier report of the 1600-1700 turn (see here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/985670/little-round-top-... ). As I noted there, a lot is happening on a tactical level so I’m writing this up based on hourly turns (which take me a week of…

Little Round Top – 1600-1700 hours – ‘The devil’s work at The Devil’s Den’

Little Round Top – 1600-1700 hours – ‘The devil’s work at The Devil’s Den’



I’ve begun my third scenario of GBACW – Three Days of Gettysburg. This time I’ve stepped it up a little more and am taking on the Little Round Top scenario. This scenario focuses on the Confederate attempt to roll up the Union left (southern flank) on 2 July, 1863, the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg.



Looking over the field, the CSA begins strong, but they have no reinforcements. They need to…
