This week we were at Ian's as I am preparing Shedquarters for a Bank Holiday game. The other main point of interest (other than Will's game) was my testing of a new lens and macro attachment on my digital SLR. So, lots of pictures, little narrative.
For this game Phil & I played the slavers, Chris K & Ian the deniers of state rights.
|Ian surveys the opening positions. Actually he's making tea|
|Will trying to work out what he's doing|
|"So Will, what exactly are these again?"|
|A couple of moves in Yankees already on Bloody Hill.|
|The MNG, l-r Ian, Me, Phil, Will & Chris K|
|More fighting on the Bl**dy Hill|
|Yet another Reb failure to close with the Yankees|
|Reb Reserves "rush" across the Creek|
|The Rebs finally make it onto Bloody Hill. Game over|
|Macro lens shot of a Fluttering Flag.|
So the game ended with a Reb victory. Lots of frustrating dice rolling as ever in an RFCM game. Phil's average Rebs failed over three or more turns to get enough APs to assault from 3 inches, even with a general attached. We all enjoyed the game, but there is something not quite right with this game system.
(The camera is a Canon EOS350D. The new lens is a 10-22mm Sigma f4.5. I'm using a SLIK Mini-pro V desktop tripod. The macro lens came with a 58mm wide angle adapter set)
