Howdy! BGen. Hecht, you have seemed to missed my point. Which is that there is nothing Ballisticly relevant to a -20 modifier for uphill shooting. It's just a made up, arbitrary thing. You forget, or do not know, that the Enfield Rifled Musket, Springfield Rifled Musket, and all other "Rifled M...

Howdy All! Quite interesting. Love the discussion. I see that the consensus is that Supply wagon travel is arbitrary and capricious. Up to the game designer, so be it. Regarding the -20 penalty for "uphill" shooting I have seen no argument other than the Designer "Said So". Hecht...

Howdy! Now here is something I always wanted clarified. Why is there a -20 penalty for firing uphill?! I always thought the designers believed firing uphill was inaccurate and went with the flow. But now think the designers haven't a Clue. Movement uphill or attacking uphill has some disadvantages o...

Howdy Mike! Thanks for the insight. According to my calculations, with each hex at 125 yards (or 375 feet) across and the Supply wagon moving 30 hexes per hour, that is 11250 feet or 2.13 miles/hour. Quite close to N. S. Dodge's 2.5 MPH. However, according to the game, that rate of advance can be ac...

Howdy Folks! Here are a few more comments for discussion. Regarding BG Supply wagons, the original "parameter data" chart showed 1 MP/hex for Pikes and Roads, and 2 MP/hex for trails. That was never the case. Why bother securing a good road system if your Supply units cannot possibly keep ...

Howdy Folks! Now I only have Overland, Gettysburg and Atlanta but I think these comments may apply to all. I was waiting to see what the new GB update had to offer. In Campaign GB, why cannot Supply wagons travel at 1 MP/hex on a road? In Overland it's 1 hex on a road. Just like some clarification. ...

Howdy Folks! I am a veteran Confederate officer looking for an oppponent of the Yankee persuasion for BGC 18a-Bragg Avoids a Trap. I have never played this one before (except against the AI which wasn't too rewarding). It's played on the Chickamauga field for 60 turns including an overnight, plenty ...

Gentlemen of the North: A Confederate Officer requires willing Blue Bellies to engage in a Hill Challenge Game. Said Officer has a Divisional force of 5,000+ points and will consider reasonable offers. A MP game is an option provided a maximum of 3 Officers per side but equivelent force points shoul...
