Gettysburg 150


Vignettes in 54mm

The Secondhand Lions are gearing up for an annual convention here in Lee's Summit, MO.  We intend to present a celebration game in honor of the 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg.  We will be setting up on Friday night for a two session/three scenario display of the 54mm collection of Ken Van Pelt.  We call this presentation:

Gettysburg Vignettes in 54mm

 Here are some images from our first playtest/ run through.  The rules we are using are based on the early work of Joseph Morchauser and have been used in our club for over 20 years. VBACW or "Very Big American Civil War" rules.  For the convention we will be providing signed numbered editions of the rules as a souvenir.  The table is charming in an old school manner.  The rules likewise.
Below is our first scenario: McPherson Ridge.

The Confederates took the ridge in our play test as supposed.  We played it in under two hours.  Looks convention ready.
Thanks for looking in on our blog and gaming group - see you at the con...
