Quick Volley & Bayonet Game!

Not much time for gaming/hobby today, but I did have time to upload pics of my latest Volley & Bayonet game from last night.

Six regiments of rebs against four regiments of yanks.  The rebs were organized into 2 brigades of 3 regiments with the yanks organized into smaller brigades of 2 regiments.

Rebs were rated at strength point 3, morale 4 (3-4) with the yanks 3-5 (slightly higher morale).

rebs moving forward.  strategy was to hold the yankees with one brigade while the other moved around the flank

first blood goes to the yankees.  the rebs score a double 1!!

close combat!!

finally got to use my snazzy casualty markers

casualty markers equal lost strength points

battle up and down the line!

  1. Beautiful figures and pictures, once again! Great work...

    1. thanks, Phil! It was a short battle. I need more units painted up...

  2. Nice. I like the casualty markers.

    1. thank you, Mike. I had these guys painted up awhile ago and decided to start using them. Perfect for Volley and Bayonet when you don't have much record keeping to do.

  3. Great looking game Steven. Really like the way you keep track of casualties. We have the old clip board and just mark them off!!

  4. Great post Steven. The South shall rise again!

    1. Thanks, Paul. It certainly seems that way! Next up - same forces but using Black Powder rules.
