Inspired by 'A Grab Bag of Games' Blog and 'Mac's Little Friends' (see down the right hand side) I couldn't resist a game that represented historically what happened in my own back yard- So I bought some figures, made the terrain- bought some trees and hey presto- a nice little game!!
My solo effort was meant to give the rules a dry run- a group of warriors ( Just over 30) were hunting- and found a shearing shed and group on their traditional lands- a dozen or so Redcoats were in the area- they had to be - it wouldn't be much of a game if they weren't!
A quick game that I played in just over an our- with 6 warriors killed or wounded- and three redcoats downed- and holding the field. I enjoyed it - now just to get some of the Brothers to have a game!
