The above picture is the start of a game from Keith's 15mm C&GII event the last weekend in March. It featured troops from the OOB of Sicile, and had the French attacking the prepared Austrian positions stationed below the town.
The battle ended in a minor Austrian victory.
The French attacked in force along the entire Austrian line below the town. The first line of the Austrian line was pushed back, but the Austrian second line was not particularly challenged. It was an easy game to play and a fair bit of fighting did occur. Ultimately, the game ended due to real life time expiring. I was the unfortunate owner of the Draggons, poised to make the big central charge, that was probably 2 turns away.
I like the C&G system for a few reasons; at the end of the afternoon I haven't fried my brain doing math equations, the fog of war the system creates, and the implemenation of fatigue as a trackable variable on the battle field. I would however beg for a better system of using the system for large battles. Waiting for sequential event entry really can slow things down.
However, in the end, I had a great time as Keith R can beally host a party.
Greeting's! I expect to use this page to pass on my little bit of joy that comes with my wargaming hobby. My true interest is in the grandtactical aspects of 1800's warfare; both home and abroad. My interest was first started way too long ago by my unknowing mentor, Jay.
I enjoy miniatures in 15mm and 25-28mm. I have collected quite a few and try to game enough that I can rub the varnish and paint off of them. I will be looking forward to "shouting out" my version of information.
One the the things I believe I can do is help the small gamer find scenario's to play, as there are very few and these are far between in a noncommercial venue. Lots of great medium and large scale battles exist, but few exist for the beginning armies. I wish to post the scenario appropriate information, so that people may then modify that information to fit there rules system.I would in turn like some feedback from anyone who plays these so that I can tweek or add information that may be necessary. I do hope people will enjoy.
