Loving that Henry rifle! Which class/regiment/rank/whatever will be able to use repeating rifles like henry and spencer rifles? Also who will use breech-loaders like Sharps rifles?
Cavalry, sharpshooters and the like will get access to repeaters and breech loaders. Certain other regiment of infantry were also issued with these rifles and will therefore get access to them too.
This game looks really awesome guys. If you guys are looking for any more reference material there is a fantastic but very hard to come by book called the Columbia Rifles Research Compendium It is a fantastic resource for living history and just material culture of the Union infantry in the eastern theater during the Civil War made about 13 years ago. If you can find a copy I highly recommend. Thanks so much again for sharing these great updates.
Additional material is always good to have, and definitely needed. Many thanks for the tip, we will be on the lookout for it.
We just acquired a copy of American Military Equipage by Frederick P. Todd, which took over a month to arrive from the US, so we are quite happy that we finally have it in our hands. It is fairly easy to copy stitching patterns etc. from photographs of original pieces, but none ever list the dimensions of the objects portrayed. This is where books like these come in very handy, plus they help with getting an overview over the entire spectrum, which certainly helps.
