Today we were going to do Colonial skirmish, but Phillip couldn't make it and Mick has Covid (!)
So...it was just the old 3 of Lawrence, Phil and me, so we got my American Revolution (AWI) figures out again for another game!
Amazingly, I got the Initiative! With all the odds against it I managed to roll a 6 and Phil (AKA Lord Howe) a 1! - I even got to deploy in one of the flank sectors!!!
Would this bode well for me?
The British deployed in multiple lines...Phil had the bulk of the British on their right.
The army had fought hard, and had had some successes, but the British were in the ascendancy.
The difficult terrain which made the British maneuverability outperform the Continentals, as well as some bad opening command rolls, made it very hard for the Americans to attack. I think I sympathise with the Americans at Monmouth Courthouse a lot more now!, and I cannot help but think the Virginian attack resembled Picketts charge!
Fun game though!
