    While playing a Gettysburg boardgame, a local situation developed that I thought would make an interesting figures game.

    I have done a discussion blog post and AAR that looks at that.

    A great idea Norm and loved the action with the figures. Nice that that one encounter can lead to 3 game options.

    What a fantastic idea, using boardgames to generate miniature scenarios. I remember you posted something similar in the past.

    I adore Battle Hymn as well, but actually prefer the Pea Ridge half of the game. I have played it 3 times and had 3 very different results.

    Thanks Gents. I am putting up the Pea Ridge scenario tomorrow – the terrain dense map looks very interesting.

    Reminds me of Mighty Empires by GW.

    It was a big ass hex map and you battled in the summer and taxed peasants and did politicking in the winter.
    You moved armies around and they needed to be kept supplied and all that.
    You could also send spies and so forth to the other kingdoms.
    But when the armies met on the same hex you would get out the miniatures and have at it!!

    Thanks Gents. I am putting up the Pea Ridge scenario tomorrow – the terrain dense map looks very interesting.

    Despite the terrain density it is a very mobile scenario. Lots of cavalry, and trails for units to move on. For me, it usually degenerates into two separate, very hard fights. Love it!
