The Confederates outnumbered the Federals in number of figures, as it was their goal to crush the Federal left wing of the army of the Potomac. We played for 3 hours, and most of the players not used to Fire & Fury, mend we didn't do that many turns resulting in the battle not finished. When we stopped Kristof on the left wing had stopped Alexes advance, and even took the offensive. Centre left, Siegfried stopped Adrien with a daring offensive move with one brigade pushing Adrien to spent more brigades at that point which couldn't be used to give pressure on the defensive line of Siegfried. Two of Adrien brigades went trough some corn fields to avoid this brigade but lost time marching trough this difficult terrain. On the right, both sides had their setbacks and victories, with no clear result yet. Adrien has painted all figures, some are from Hät, some are metal figures. As it is the beginning of the war a number of the "blues" have indeed grey uniforms and vice versa. Even a Scottish brigade with the kilt.
Many thanks to Mr. Donvil.
