‘Last Stand at Herr Tavern - Gettysburg’ or ‘How to employ a reverse slope defence and render enemy artillery useless’

‘Last Stand at Herr Tavern - Gettysburg’ or ‘How to employ a reverse slope defence and render enemy artillery useless’





This is my second run-through of the Herr’s Ridge scenario for GMT’s Three Day’s of Gettysburg (3rd Ed., 2004). In my first play I’d accidentally included Devin’s brigade, meaning the Union had far more strength then they should have. You can read that report here:…

Illustrated Session Report: The first shots of Gettysburg and the fight for Herr’s Ridge

Illustrated Session Report: The first shots of Gettysburg and the fight for Herr’s Ridge



This is an AAR of my first ever scenario of a Great Battles of the American Civil War game. I picked up both 3DoG (Three Days of Gettysburg) and RBoC (Red Badge of Courage) at the same time, but Gettysburg grabbed my interest so I investigated it first.



It took me about a week to read through the rules several times, and check many queries on BGG and CSW. This is a…

City Fight (SPI)

 

I am finally getting around to typing up a new scenario set in Jerusalem during the Six Dat war..it's been in the works for years, but never seemed to have the time to finsish it.

Planning to post a copy here and also in the BGG Files section for the game.

Would be good to get some feedback and maybe play results when it is done and it probably still needs a great deal of tweaking.

Wargamers Prayer

Our Wargame, which art on table,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done,

in vassal as it is on table.

Give us this day our daily moves.

And forgive us our false moves,

as we forgive them that false move against us.

And lead us not into contempt;

but deliver us from boredom.

[For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever.]

Amen.
