part 2 of Clash at the Creek with Maurice in the American War of Independence

Getting ready, the American defense lines are set-up
After a bit of delay, no doubt caused by the curse of setting up the table in advance thereby causing serendipitous chain of events guaranteeing the game will be delayed by a couple of weeks, Tonio and myself final got to play out the clash of the Creek scenario I posted a while ago (link).

Raising the militia with Maurice in the American war of Independence

I have been busy chipping away at my AWI project. Recently I managed to paint up a brigade of three Militia regiments (only another 400 infantry, 45 cavalry and 4 guns to go).To mark the occasion Tonio volunteered to play an AWI Maurice game. For the scenario I raided the Black Powder rulebook and opted to play something influenced by their ACW scenario.  The idea being the American are raising the militia when the British get word of this they dispatch a force to disperse the Rebel camp
