This is a challenging scenario where the Rebels have 6 command cards and the Yankees have 4 but great positioning on the field. The Rebels are spread out and not concentrated.
|Heights visible upper right and of course Burnside's Bridge! The Cornfield is visible on the far center-left and the sunken lane in the center of the field near Dunker Church and the visitor's center....er wait.|
|Burnside's men poised to assault across Antietam Creek|
|AP Hill's Division moves forward|
|Guarding the sunken lane|
|AP Hill prepares to counter attack the bridge after Burnside seizes it!|
|Heavy fighting in and around the cornfield as the Union troops press on.|
|Rebs push the Union back to their start line at Burnside's Bridge. Still the scene of brutal fighting|
Battle Cry is probably one of the simplest of the Commands and Colors games with many elements lacking that are in the Napoleonic and later versions. Brian brought over some extra rules he'd found adding some neat flavor (rules for taking ground, different movement and firing values, etc) and I would really like to try those soon. All in all, a great and relaxing day of gaming. Can't wait to do more! This weekend's focus was on the basement re-organization and storing away most of my World War 3 Cold War 15mm stuff (don't worry I'll come back to it soon) in favor of 6mm 1/285 micro armor projects. Also putting my British WWII forces in storage for the time while I'm finishing up the Americans. Have been working down in the basement cleaning up for the better part of 2 days!
