I met Nick on Sunday to introduce him to the game Longstreet. Rather than use a point build I started with the starting campaign armies and did the post battle process (assuming 3 casualties to each unit). This gave me two very balanced forces. My assumption is both nick and I have step into brigade command in 1862 after our predecessors were promoted or removed. Nicks army was a little larger and all his men were Eager where as I had one unit of Seasoned. Each of us had one veteran.
After the game we again did the post battle process both of us promoted several unit to Veteran. Nick replaced part of his artillery losses. My army suffered a lot of camp fever and had several fall in Elan. I did get a new 6 stand Seasoned Veteran unit. I also got a light and a heavy Rifle which is one of the best confederate artillery cards. I did not get much in the way of replacement so I have several 4 base infantry units. Nick and I hope to do it again next month (or early March).
