I have to admit that the last year has been a nightmare. I now hope to be back regularly gaming and updating the blog.
It is once again that time of year when I think about putting on a game at my local show Legionary http://legionaryshow.co.uk/ . Normally I do try to put on a era that is new every year. This keeps the game fresh for repeat visitors and normally gives me an opportunity to venture into and start collecting another new era. I see this as a challenge of sneaking all the new lead past the unsuspecting current Mrs C and convincing her when caught that I have always had them.
Due to issues I have not gone into a new era for this year’s game but it is an era I have not yet played at Legionary.
The American War of Independence – The British are here!
This will not be a demonstration of any particular battle but a demonstration of the figures, rules and various unit types that make this such an interesting period to game.
The scenario is around a few American militia units holding the advancing British at bay and hopefully help arriving before being overrun. Meanwhile the British have advanced along both side of the river hoping to secure the main bridge and exits by the end of the day.
The Figures are all from my collection of Foundry, Perry, Old Glory, Redoubt and Wargame Factory.
Over the next few weeks leading up to the show I will cover a few of the units hopefully appearing in the game.
The Rules are our favourite Fields of Honor with home rules.
