Once the battle started the game quickly slowed down. Some moves only 1 or 2 units were moving. Once battle was joined, using the Horse & Musket rules individual figures would be retreating instead of the whole unit. This can lead to widely scattered figures throughout the field. After about 45 minutes I went back to using Bob Corderys Memoir of Battle rules. The game quickly picked up. However, the game played out as the "Battle of Sow Creek" with basically the same result. Needless to say there's no need to recap it again, although I have added a few pictures so as to highlight the Peter Laing figures.
|The Union line.|
|The Confederate army.|
|The Confederate cavalry flank the Union right.|
|The Union start to break the rebel line.|
|The Union try to turn the Confederate right.....|
|....and breaks the line.|
The lessons learned: don't play the same scenario so close together. Also, Chris Salander's rules are better suited towards skirmish style games with small number of figures.
