After last night's game of getting my feet wet in the bogs of Ireland,tonight's game was a rollicking romp through the woods of 18th century North America courtesy of Angus Konstam.A Muskets and Tomahawks game was on the agenda with a French attack on a British colonial village defended by militia with support from British regulars and loyal natives.
We started the game by skulking round the woods(as the French usually do)beside the village hoping to attack on a wide front with our indian allies attacking on the flanks and our regulars and irregulars heading for the centre of the village.
My irregulars slowly made their way through the woods looking for another building to burn.They emerged from the woods just in time to see their regular comrades getting wasted by some British regulars who had appeared as reinforcements.
Campbell at this time had moved his forces slowly up the road into the town attracting musket fire as he went.
Once again a very good game played on a small table so that the belligerents would be straight into action.I like Musket and Tomahawk rules as it gives me the feeling of colonial American warfare without the need for large armies.
