Gettysburg at Dragonflight

This game, the second day of Gettysburg, deserved special attention.  It was set-up below the main staircase of the Bellevue Hilton convention center and provided passers-by with a spectacular view of the miniature battle.

The game was hosted by Allen Dyer, using his homemade rules, Farmers & Firepower

A more grounds-eye view looking at the Union right flank. 

Looking towards the Union center. 

The struggle for Devil's Den.  Even in miniature form, the aptly-named terrain looks like a nasty piece of work.

The 15th Georgia Regiment assaults Little Round Top...

...but the 20th Maine stands firm!

Some of the guys dressed in Civil War uniforms, while Chloe enjoyed playing a "Janey Reb" in her "Southern Gothic" ensemble.

That is a very well put together set-up. Definitely worth the attention.

Allen did a fantastic job. The location, right below the stairs was a perfect spot for overhead shots.
