I have also set about setting up some "fictional" orders of battle, making up the commanders' names and rolling for their abilities and for the units' ranking. I put a corp on the table for each side. Most of the units are trained or green to start with, but I'll adjust their classification based on their performance in battle.
Here are some pictures from my first action with these made up armies. It has been fun pitting them against each other.
|Union artillery in the center was effective, but paid a price.|
|Action on the Confederate left. The rebels weren't doing very well on this flank.|
|A southern charge against a Union brigade behind a stone wall, supported by artillery, didn't go well.|
|On the Confederate right, this charge drove back three large Union regiments.|
|From behind the stone wall position.|
|This is a Union brigade advancing in the center.|
|A wider view from the Confederate left flank.|
