Epic Battles: ACW Wave 3 Confederate Pre-Order Bundle
Pre order only - Releasing June '21
Get two of each of the new ACW Wave 3 Box Sets: Skirmishers and Dismounted Cavalry in this convenient bundle.
The new skirmishers and dismounted cavalry perfectly complement the Infantry Brigades found in the Epic Battles American Civil War Starter Set, and afford players additional tactical flexibility, not to mention enlivening the battlefield.
Skirmishing troops were important parts of Union and Confederate battleplans during the American Civil War. Ranging ahead of the main attack columns, skirmishers advanced in loose formations to harass the enemy, draw fire, and 'screen' the troops behind them ahead of a major bayonet charge.
The military use of cavalry saw some radical changes from previous wars. Unwilling to needlessly sacrifice troops in headlong charges that could no longer hit home against the firepower of opposing infantry and cavalry formations. Their role thus became more akin to that of a dragoon – mounted infantry.
You’ll receive 6 regiments of dismounted cavalry (18 stands of dismounted infantry and 6 stands of horseholders) and 20 stands of skirmishers.
You’ll also receive 3 mounted command miniatures and a pack of the new casualty markers (12 infantry & 6 Cavalry) free as part of this bundle – this deal is only available as a pre-order.
