DBACW Battle of Kernstown Part 3

Work..Work..Work... yawn - no time for play.

Right, the final session of our Battle of Kernstown.  The Union forces are spread thin, Jacksons Brigade are assaulting the main hill in the centre held by the Union Artillery.  Could Jack get his Union troops in a position to win the day? 


On come the Stonewall Brigade, straight into the Union Cannons..

On the far Rebel left, Tyler's Union Brigade attack.

FIRE !!!!

Casualties mount in the centre right, the Rebs are holding their own.

A Union Regiment bites the dust....

Plus one of  Tylers Brigade melts away in front of the Reb guns...
the rest are sent packing.

Some of the Stonewall Brigade charge up the hill...

The Reb Artillery again finds it's mark...

It's chaos in the centre...

Too late, Jack sends some Union troops to hold the hill.

Tyler's Brigade retires to reform...

The Stonewall Brigade is rock hard...

Up close on 'The HILL'

It's too much for Jack, he's had enough & his Union troops retreat...

The Battlefield at the end...

Victory for the Confederates & well within the time limit too.  DBACW works well, another hit from KISR.  There's some nice touches to it.  Morale does play a big part we felt, the Stonewall Brigade was rock hard.  Jack did get his tactics wrong for holding them back.  Time's short - I'll try and add more thoughts later...

I'm a little late coming back to your blog Mr F. Too busy with my own adventures I'm afraid.
I'm a fan of ACW gaming so I really enjoyed the latest offerings (nice pics. too). I really must visit sooner.

Cheers
Steve

Cheers Steve! Alas... time is at a premium once more & there's no time for gaming. Hopefully things will change & we can get get a few games in soon.

Good Luck with your stuff
