One of three games run at this month club gathering was a Muskets & Tomahawks affair with six of us each putting together a mixed force of Regulars, Indians and Irregulars to the sum of 300 points.
|British forces moving up the valley from the river|
|French regulars at the fort|
|The French stand to as the British approach|
|British regulars move up the centre with Indians and Rangers on the flanks|
|On the look out for an ambush|
|British Grenadiers, Militia and Indians guard the boats|
Moving swiftly to the wood line the French light troops opened fire on the rear of the Ranger unit, surprising them and causing a recoil. At the same time the British hat men in the centre were taking hits from the woods and the French regulars to their front recoiling back as well.
|British Light Infantry comb the woods on the left flank|
|Rangers and Regulars prepare to fire on the fort's garrison|
|Rangers keep watch on the woods to the British right flank|
|More regulars support the attack on the fort|
|The British fall back as the woods erupt on both flanks with French Indians and Irregulars|
|Coureur de Bois with Indians poor fire on the Redcoats|
|The French regulars and the cannon add their support to the ambush|
|The British light infantry hold their own|
|The British are forced back losing men under the continual sniping|
|The stragglers fall back to the boats|
Thanks to Chas, Vince, Steve, Andy and Tom for a very fun game.
