Golden Journal:
Snowfall 2014

Several times a year, when we feel like it, the Golden Journal brings Gold Club members a set of extras for their Avalanche Press games. Our sixth issue has its focus on the War of the States/Empires games Battles of 1866: Frontier Battles and Chickamauga & Chattanooga, with two variants for each game.

For Frontier Battles, we look at Austria's too-little-too-late attempts to arm its infantry with breechloading rifles, and how this might have affected the outcome of the battles of 1866 had it been accomplished in time. We've provided new pieces for a brigade armed with Werndl breechloaders (Ferdinand Poschacher von Poschach's "Iron Brigade" of I Corps) so you can try it out in the Jicin scenarios.

As part of Austria's desperate attempts to re-arm, the Imperial-Royal Army acquired another new technology: the Gatling gun. The Viennese firm of Paget purchased a license and began production, but the guns did not reach the troops until years after the war had ended. Once again, we have new pieces to equip I and X Corps so you can mow down the Prussians at Jicin and Trautenau.

We went the route of weirdness and fun for Chickamauga&Chattanooga. You get pieces for the Confederate helicopter, so you can bomb the Yankee invaders into oblivion. Or as the Northern forces of freedom, you can deploy Siamese elephants.

The Snowfall 2014 Journal includes 21 new laser-cut, mounted, scorchless and sootless pieces: 3 oversized infantry brigade pieces and 18 square ones. They're on the new pretty-thick stock that gamers have come to love.
