General d'Armee 2

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to play a game of the new Second Edition of General d'Armee umpired by no less than the author himself! 

The game was at the Herts Volunteers and was a 28mm outing in the Peninsular War.

As usual I was a commander on the French side of the engagement facing one of the two villages in the centre of the table (in my case made up of two sections one of which was fortified).  I did manage to successfully assault and take the unfortified section but couldn't hold on to it and took heavy casualties.

Here are some photos from the game:

Second edition GdA isn't a radical departure from the original, it's more of evolution rather than revolution with some streamlining of mechanisms.  Having played the first edition a couple of times I found the transition pretty straightforward and will be playing these again (using other people's figures as I don't have enough suitable ones of my own!)
