Brother against brother...

...or rather father against son. Matt is up for the weekend to go with us to Partizan tomorrow, so what better opportunity for an ACW game using Black Powder, as Matt and his fellow club members in Brecon are building ACW forces to play the game. Matt chose to be the Union before seeing the set up, leaving old Jubal E Bykleigh in command of the Confederate forces.
The game lasted 10 of the alloted 12 turns before the Rebs were finally defeated, with three Broken brigades out of five a sorry reflection of the boys lacking any real fight when it mattered!

We have to be up bright and early tomorrow to travel over to Phil's, as he has gamely volunteered to be the driver for our day out, or perhaps my driving bothers him! I have a small list for the event, mostly MDF bases from Warbases and terrain features from The Last Valley. If any readers see a bemused old chap wandering about, do come up and say hello!
