Re: One day game in Irvine mid- late March

I would like to add as the victorious allied commander that our battleplan worked flawlessly (that is what austrian history books read, google it !) . We did not expect a hastily constructed part of the Maginot line fronted by the Rhine and the Pripet marshes just before the Corsican dwarf appeared....

Re: Sad news about Hugh Wilson

Always a cheery guy. Did a great job selling Iain Holt's stuff and raising money for combat stress. Spoke to him at the battlefield show and he was his usual ebullient self . A sad loss

Re: Yebel yell !

I like the way that firing is handled in fire and fury and also in Longstreet. There is to be a civil war variant on Black powder later this year. In my experience you only need light and heavy rifles. Smooth bores and howitzers although the latter were only used on specific occasions. For example a...
