All of Antietam on One Table!

Wow it's been a long time folks.  Life has been busy to say the least.  But lately I have revisited the battle of Antietam with my own Civil War Commander rules.  For this battle I tweaked up the scale so that each hex is about 250 yards and each infantry figure is 500 men.  By doing this I can have the table cover the ground from just south of Burnside's bridge, to just north of the North Woods and Poffenberger's farm.  AS far as the Order of Battle goes, I have all of the CSA army represented, and all of the Federal army except for Porter's V corps and Franklin's VI corps.  Since they did not take part in the action to a significant degree, it's okay with me to leave them out.

So here are two photos of the table.  I plan to exchange all of the bright yellow corn fields for a more muted beige color.  It looks too busy as is.  Otherwise, I kind of like it. 
View from the north east.  Miller cornfield is in the foreground, the Dunker Church in the center, Sharpsburg in the distance.
