28mm ACW Battle - Fire & Fury Regimental

Please see below a series of photos taken of the ACW battle run by Stephen at the Devon Wargames Club on Saturday, these were taken on my phone so excuse the poor photography...
The battle was a scenario set on first day of Gettysburg just North of the town...
Initial Union deployments with Ollie on the left, me (Nathan) in the centre, Mr.Steve on the right, defending the fence lines awaiting the Reb onslaught...


The Rebelious Southerner initial deployments saw, Steve on the right, Paul in the middle/left and the other Steve on the far left, coming down the road...


The Reb right launches the attack, with the off board 5 gun artillery battery harassing our left flank...


The Reb attack trying to get going, the bridge, river woods, and the other Reb brigades hindering the forces from deploying, the attacks coming off the ridge line were blown to bits by the batteries of Union guns massing the fire power... some of Steve's Reb Artillery manage to get across the bridge to deploy but the Union guns open up on them causing problems, damaging and silencing them, we may have done better if I hadn't of given him d8's to roll instead of d10's, however this only took him 5 turns to realise!!! I was just testing him honest... The Rebs needed all the help they could get...


The view from the Reb side, Steve's troops blocked from deploying, what a log jam... 


Too many Rebs, trying to get on the left of the table, leaving the their centre exposed...


The Rebs at the fence line, looking at the stout Union defences just waiting for them...
They never did risk the biscuit and come across the fields...


 The Union centre advances to engage the Rebs at close range and Coster's Brigade arrives...
So seeing an oppoutunity that the Rebs are weak in the centre and on their Right we advance with my Brigade, and the newly arrived Brigade...


View from union lines of the Reb Left and centre...


View from Union lines of the Reb right and centre, notice big gap between the two, never been able to resist a tempting target, the Rebs had lulled us into a satisfactory temptation...


So the Union left Brigades under Ollie and my centre brigades lurch into the centre void...


For what we are about to receive may the Lord make us truly thank full...
Steve is about to be charge Ollie's glorious Union troops with his thin Grey line, will they hold???
Paul bracing himself for the union onslaught... 


Charge Bayonets!!!!


Rebs move up to reinforce their line, maybe a too little too late??


Thin Grey Line...


Union centre advancing to charge forward to hit lead Reb forces on their left...


Ollie is about to return the favour to Steve with an attack of his own with serious amounts of troops to back him up...


The aftermath of the Union attack forcing their way through the Reb line, forcing Steve's brigade to retreat...


Finally the centre and right view of the battlefield, with my brigades poised to conduct a brigade assault on the Reb lines, the days game was over the Rebs conceding a defeat with Mr.Steve holding the right without many casualties, Ollie holding the Left and then attacking the centre, with the centre and right of the Rebs collapsing it was all over with a Glorious Victory for the Union Boys, Hurrah!!!


Many thanks to Stephen for putting the game on and overseeing the herd of cats, being myself (Nathan), Ollie, Mr Steve, as Union, Steve, Paul and Steve as Rebs, great days gaming yet again at the Devon Club, there was another game being run on the fringes of the room some funny bunch running a Captain Scarlett and the Mysterons game, with strange noises and hints of bondage coming from that direction... Chas, Vince and Andy being the guilty parties, all being said looked like a great fun game with some nice figures...
