Counters for McClellan’s Headquarters command present at the Battle of Seven Pines / Fair Oaks.  These units were stationed just north of the Chickahominy River near Coal Harbor (Cold Harbor), which, as noted on the bottom image consisted of a single house.
Many of the units had not seen combat to any real extent at this point.  Most of them were detachments of other units consisting of a company or battalion (several companies).
McClellan himself is given a command rating (all the leaders will, including Lee, Johnston and Smith) of only ”1” because he was suffering from malaria and did not venture out of his tent much.  He also was a very methodical and slow leader, preferring to wage a careful siege.  One thing he did do in preparation was to alert General Sumner to be ready to move on the 31st of May.
I’m also trying out other new counter images.  On this page, only the Infantry are still from the original game.  I’ve found new graphics for cavalry, supply, HQ, all the officers and artillery.  New units such as engineers, balloons and the coffee mill gun have their own graphics as well.  I’m searching for a replacement for the infantry.  If I can retain the flavor of the original game while using new renderings, it may simplify much, including any issues with image rights.Counters for McClellan’s Headquarters command present at the Battle of Seven Pines / Fair Oaks.  These units were stationed just north of the Chickahominy River near Coal Harbor (Cold Harbor), which, as noted on the bottom image consisted of a single house.
