Pat's mission: Scouting Mission
My mission: Raid
We played on a 4x4 foot table, 200pts a side.
The game progressed well I started off with hidden markers to get across from my end to the middle area where the two buildings were located. I attempted to stick to cover and fire into the French regular units.
I had set fire to the building on the left with an indian unit that later moved around the left of the building. Seeing me moving the regulars let off a volley fire and kill 3 of my indians.
On my right I attempted to make my way into the trees near the white building but I run into a friendly french indian unit. They fire into my indians, and these also fall back.

|Indian Leader in British coat upset with his mens efforts.
|ahhh!!! run away run away
With a flanking move on the left my indian unit and leader make their way around to try and close the distance.

My friend calls it, and we end the game, here is the final photos of our game.

|On the right, last indian running away.
I think he painted them pretty good. He is going to lighten them up a tad and work on doing a ink wash and highlight the face back up so they should be pretty cool looking.

Lessons learned from this game is to coordinate your units to work together support one another's actions. Don't be afraid of taking chances. if you can absorb the losses.
Till next time, have a happy gaming!
