First up Thank you and welcome to all the new followers, too many to name them all individually. I wish you all good luck for the competition and hope you find items of interest within my blog. I have hopefully managed to join all your blogs in return, but if I havent appeared please post a link as I may have struggled to find your blogs.
Right now back to todays post:
Sunday night saw me take a trip to Kev's Cabin for a game of Muskets &Tomahawks. We should have been playing at the club but as we wanted to have a fair amount of scenery which would have deprived other gamers at the club from using we decided to set up a table and pop over the road for a quick visit before gaming.
We set the table up ignoring the scenery generation part of the rules, and created something we liked the look of instead.
Kevins force (British)
6 Colonial rangers
6 Light Infantry
6 Light Infantry
1 Light Infantry Officer
Andrews force (French)
6 Huron Indians
6 Coureur des Bois
10 Compagnies Franches de la Marine
1 Compagnies Franches de la Marine Officer
After we rolled for objectives Kev got the scouting mission and I got protection, meaning I would have 10 hapless civilians to look after Lucky me!! .
The only other real action in turn one was some inconclusive shooting from the rangers and movement from the marines into the cover of the wood.
Turn 2 was more eventful as all Kevs activation cards came out sequentially before I got a move, he let of a few rounds and moved the reserve light Infantry in front of the rangers hoping to attack the marines. It wasnt to be though as I would get 4 activations and swiftly dispatched the Light Infantry with the marines, taking minimal losses, aided by the fact that I killed 5 in one round of hand to hand combat for the loss of none.
This was a great game and Kev went off to burn another set of dice !!! Looking forward to the next adventure in our folly's.
Here's the Northstar French wilderness force all together.
