SP2 F&I game -Raid

Post by mluther » Sun Sep 16, 2018 10:32 pm

Its been awhile since I did a AAR (mainly because I am too lazy to write one up), but the game yesterday was a really fun one.
It was a very basic F&I scenario. “Raid on frontier settlement” This village had a blockhouse and a company of regulars encamped there undergoing training from some rangers. We had a first time player in charge of the regulars and 3 players with some experience of SP2.
Lost of action and plenty of laughs, including a bull that attacked a group of Couereur de Bois.
If you would like to play some games similar to this, we are planning a Historical Game day that will include a couple of SP2 games (AWI and 2nd Seminole War) on Saturday Nov 10 in Marietta GA We’ll have some CoC and Coastal Patrol in the mix too.
Come on by if your in the area. Its a free all day event and we have great food and beer on site.
Just Pm me

Great looking game! I love the table! That’s a lot of ! in one post. Thanks for sharing and glad you all had lots of fun. Quick terrain question, how did you make the sections of stone walls?

The walls are from Musket Miniatures I think. Resin cast.
Thanks,
Mark

That looks really super.
Faith! If they tried to outrun a Hielandmon, they stood but a bad chance, for Whash! went the broadsword.

Second Seminole War sounds like a fascinating subject for a SP2 game. I guess the swampy terrain would make for interesting problems.

2nd Sem War is perfect for SP scale skirmish Good variety of troops and variable movement fits the unknown nature of the terrain. I've done a few games in SP v1. The blinds work nicely

Thanks. Its not a mat.. Just an old bedsheet that has been dyed and spray painted several times over that last decade. I use chalk pastels to make roads and brown tracks.
