We were using Hail Ceaser rules which have used many times before and enjoyed. However we had not played for a while and our familiarity with the similar, but still very different Black Powder rules hindered rather than helped as we got various rules wrong. We had perhaps started the game slightly too far apart, being used to the rapid movement of Black Powder which is pretty much halved in Hail Ceaser.
Another fun game at the barn but this time a real spectacle with the shear volume of troops on table. I think if we were to paly this again starting closer would be ideal, perhaps changing the seven foot wide table to 6 foot would have given a more decisive result.
A thoroughly enjoyable day with Chris, Chris, Jerry, Andy Richard, Steve and Dave. Thanks for the day out gents.
So that's it for now, I am cracking on with the Swedish Guard Grenadiers and hope to have these completed by the weekend. Thanks for reading.
