Turn 12. At first I felt Garret was being cautious, but now he is pushing hard at Longstreet NOT Jackson. Unexpected. So, general battle all around. Hood launched his first charge this turn. I am falling behind in points cause I keep screwing up. If you play against Garret he is an expert in artille...

We are on turn 4 now. I routed a couple of his 1st corps, AoV troops after they took my guns on turn 1. After that he faded back into the woods. I am not sure what his arrival/release schedule is, so maybe he does not have much to work with yet. Lee and Longstreet showed up with 1.5 brigades of cava...

Lt Col Garret FitzGerald and I had just finished Brawner's Farm, and decided to do a short Antietam campaign starting at 2nd Bull Run, then Chantilly and on to Sharpsburg. We each had one campaign choice to choose before the first battle, I, as the Confederates, chose 'Hood arrives from the north'. ...

At that point it was obvious the Federals were playing a different game than the Confederates. So no battle mattered including Vicksburg. Vicksburg barely ...

Experienced yet insanely rusty. I used to have a couple of friends that I played these games with regularly, but they have both lost interest in wargames and mostly only play Civilization and what-not. So, very rusty. I am playing Brawner's farm for the first time against Lt Col Garret FitzGerald at...

I own Ageods ACW2, Th...
