Battle of McDowell - June 17 at the Hangar
June 17 - Battle of McDowell (May 8, 1862)
4 player playtest of my ACW battle for Guns Of August using the Niel Thomas ACW rules (with some modifications). The play area is 4ft square with a lot of elevation changes (see this map):
My elevations and rivers will be all done, but I'd like to get some help from the club to use the available ODMS stock of buildings, bridges, trees, crops, etc to make for some nice eye candy.
In particular, I need to get the town of McDowell to look pretty good for the second scenario, where Jackson attacks the Federals in the town.
