The Skirmisher Magazine Issue #4


The Skirmisher #4 is the fourth magazine in the award-winning Great Campaigns of the American Civil War (GCACW) series of games.  Skirmisher #4 is centered around the reprint of Stonewall Jackson’s Way II (SJW2), so players should own this game (or the original SJW) to fully enjoy all the elements of Skirmisher #4.

  • A colorful set of playtest reports on the Lee’s Last Offensive scenarios.
