A test battle - With MacDuff on the frontier ...

 In preparation for a convention that just passed, I had opportunity to join players from across Canada in a game put on by Ross Mac of  Battle Game of the Month

 We discussed some layout items and lighting issues for running games and then divided into our combat commands.

 Ross was not able to take pictures (running the game solo) - so I took on the task where I could.

start positions

each 'wing' of the Revolution forces had to
cross a river before engaging Royalists

the aim was to stop a convoy waggon
from getting across the field (left to right)

took a bit of time to sort out the commands
and what effectiveness they would be

it was good being able to watch others take their
actions before doing my own

cards were used to determine which 'command'
was activated - meaning you never knew when
your 'turn' would be on

thanks gents for the game

Full battle review is from Ross here: Trying it On

You guys were the first set of guinea pigs. A valuable service rendered to all those who followed.

Thanks for joining in. It was good to be in a game with you again.

That was pretty fun, even if I couldn't get the damn cart moving ;)

Nice! This looks like a different scenario from the one I playetested.
