I have been playing a boardgame called Clash of Giants - ACW by GMT, which has a 2nd Bull Run scenario. There was a situation in the game that looked like it would translate across to a figures game with low unit density and it seemed like an interesting opportunity to squeeze the Black Powder rules to play out a small action in a small space.
Black Powder is a set of figure rules from Warlord Games. Slightly generic in nature as they cover a fair block of history, but the ACW supplement, Glory Hallelujah, brings a period focus to the set.
The boardgame counters represent brigades, so we will break them down into their regimental and battery components and create a more tactical game of the same situation.
This post outlines the conversion process, while Part 2, will give an AAR (once that is done, a link will be added to the Resource Section at the foot of the post).
