Yes I can see there are cavalry there. I don't know if there is infantry since I don't open up the game solo to see what the Yankees have. I also don't know what actually happened in the real battle. All I have to base any action on is what was shown to me in the opening information. Oh never mind. ...

I will throw my 2 cents in regarding the campaign info at the beginning. I am a few turns into the Cassville scenario of an Atlanta Campaign. The information given at the beginning suggested I attack the Union left with Hood's Corps on my right. I moved to set up such an attack when I observed what ...

My original post was born from frustration in getting crushed defending at Antietam. I have now been paying much more attention to the results of fire combat. Also, perhaps it has just been luck but only recently have I begun encountering opponents who "stack fire" their units. The progression of my...

After watching the progress of this thread I think much of it goes back to the original issue that was giving me problems: That being units in a stack firing combined. What prompted my first post was that in two Antietam games both my opponents would fire all the units in a stack together and thus l...

What I have seen to two resounding defeats is that when you fire guns in a stack combined you can get a hit more often than not. In both of my games stack firing, especially with infantry was a major factor, perhaps so much not in my defeats as I was out played, but in the lack of enjoyment. Over an...

I would like to comment on the Antietam game Rich and I have started. I will first say that I was totally wrong in saying that the game was unbalanced in favor of the Union. That is simply not the case. I am playing the Union and Rich is killing me. Hooker and Mansfield's attack is pretty much crush...

I do agree with Ken that defensive fire should be more effective for the reasons he stated. Obviously where this is a problem is when the offensive unit gets hit multiple times at full strenght with opportunity fire. I don't have any idea how the game engine works so sometimes the ideas I propose ar...

I just played a turn. during the Union turn the Rebs lost a total of 486 men to 134 for the Yanks. During my move I fired all stacks combined and any unit that was less than 100 men facing more than one enemy unit did not fire. All guns fired combined. The Rebs lost 85 men and the Yanks lost 424. So...

I would like to state that my recent posts are not criticisms of the HPS games. I really enjoy them and will continue. My issue is simply with Antietam and the problems I am having in a current game. And Rich, I would like to play a manouver against you in order to learn how the Rebs should play tha...

My counter batter activity was mainly when I had flank shots. I did leave guns in harms way in order to draw the enemy fire away from infantry I had digging in and I accept those losses. Still, I am unsure how I could have done anything different unless it was to fire all my stacked unit combined. I...

We are playing turn based. My eighty men fire and get shot by 500 or their 500 shoot and my 80 fire back. Either way they lost 5 and I lose 25. Perhaps phased play would be the way to go.

I am currently playing HPS Antietam historical scenario. So far this game is the most one sided I have played from any of the games. My opponent has used artillery and rifle fire exclusivley and I have no counter. He didn't begin his attacks on the West Woods until about turn 18 and it is now turn 2...
