Today, I reaped the benefit of about 2 years on and off painting figures for the American War of Independence/American Revolution, as we tried my new 7 Years war rules variant with about half the total figures I had painted!
For our first trial playtest game, I worked out 2 armies, and let the other players choose what they wanted. Phil got Lord Howe, Lawrence the Hessians, and I was George Washington!
As per the 7 years war, I lost initiative so had to deploy first...
I put my North Carolina Continentals on the right - with State troops and others.
