Battle Cry 150 quick reference card with capability summary, terrain effects chart, card distribution summary, play diagrams, and card-use restrictions, all consistent with official errata; makes a handy reference for new players, and provides a quick refresher for expert players; recommend printing double-sided onto card stock
These are a set of American Civil War battle flags that I created based on historical patterns. They are intended for personal use by Battle Cry fans and ACW gamers generally. This set was first available on John Foley's The Wargamer web site, but that is now down.
This chart provides ratings for 70 Civil War generals to use with a second deck of Tactician Cards and revised Command Cards such as those by Michael Dippel, in line with those in the upcoming Leadership Expansion #3 for C&C Napoleonics. Together, they allow you to upgrade BC150 from its basic Hasbro published version to the level of other current C&C designs by Richard Borg. This draft covers all of the generals in scenarios provided by the game, and most of those on the site at www.ccnapoleonics.net
Excel Worksheets for Terrain by Battle and Units by Battle. Includes all the scenarios in BC 150 and the Chancellorsville scenario from the original BC. Sortable by Battle, Date, Set, Terrain, Army and Units. Includes totals. Units by Battle sheet includes notes on Special Units by battle.
