Battle of Stones River Dec 31, 1862
As we hadn't had a get together at my place for a while, (work, family etc), I organised an impromptu gathering with a couple of the lads for a game of Fire and Fury. (I don't any ACW rules or figures).
Very special thanks to Cookie who provided ALL the figures and scenery as I could only manage the boards and location. With a few lads we had 2 Union commanders (Paul & Sam) and 3 Rebel. (Cookie, Beccas and myself)
Early start with Cookie arriving at 8am, by the time the figures were in the starting position, people arrived and first round of coffees were made, kick off was 10.30. lunch with at 12.30 for an hour and we finished up at about 4pm.
I believed we completed about 4 turns as Cookie was the only person who had used these rules before. They played very well and it didn't take to long to pick them up.
Beccas led off with the rebels across and open field towards the union troops sheltering behind a fence line in a wooded area.
The union delivered a vicious volley causing many casualties and disordering the rebel line before the rebels returned fired but they couldn't hit the side of a barn, let alone the union troops in cover.
Hopefully everyone had a good day and we can do it all again in the future.
