Well it was a club day yesterday and Tim Bought along his "Muskets and Tomahawks " models for a game following an email from me in the week asking what he wanted to do to which he replied "As the oldest and wisest among us I will make the decision! I went with it.
The scenario was pretty much the same one we played at the Broadside show but this time with the British attacking and the French defending. There really were a few differences like all the regular troops starting off table and having to arrive, the French also had an artillery piece (More of that later) and a blockhouse and the British troops had a few special abilities (Rangers with sharp shooter skills for example.) You get the idea basically the same game but with a few tweaks.
Bob Launches a close assault and I beat them Back. So I launch one in retaliation and cause casualties but the French pass their morale so hold the line.
Then as luck would have it the French get two Indian cards in a row and manage to charge two of my units (the Light Infantry and my Rangers who are already in melee. The writing is on the wall and both my units are instantly reduced to s signal man and an officer each. I pass the morale and they cannot run away and have to fight on!
Time is now getting late and I have far too many troops to hold the left wing and Tim's regulars are so badly chewed up we concede the game. A Major French Victory!
Well done to Mat and Bob. And commiserations to Me and Tim!
While it is subject to change next month at the club I will be teaching some guys "Battletech" and 2 weeks after that we plan to do a Chain of Command VBCW> So that's the plan anyway.
Thanks for reading today have fun and I hope to see you all soon.
