Fondler's Pirate AAR

This is a great scenario - Fondler (assisted by Fellatio Lawnmower RN) tries to storm a pirate nest.
View from HMS Incontinent:
Fondler landed at the quay and was spotted after one move by a pirate patrol. These started exchanging fire, but were soon driven off, but the noise roused the watch. The alarm bell rang out from the old fort, and sleepy pirates started to spill out into the courtyard.
Fondler raced across the bridge, and smashed the gate, but was driven back by intense fire and a pirate charge from the fort.
The british were lucky in having the blank card come up every turn, so the sailors landed very soon and immediately stormed towards the fort, now under heavy fire from the defenders. One group started to withdraw toward the boats but the other two stormed into the fort.
Meanwhile the Pirate leader attacked with his body guard from the other side and was held off by the riflemen.
The sailors soon cleared the courtyard at point of cutlass, and the remaining pirates fled.
A great game!

The game looks excellent and clearly played well. Nice one.

On another note, how can something this good have had 30-odd views without a comment? I suppose SP is just a bit too 'last year' and is therefore no longer good/interesting now.

Keep up the good work Steve!

SP not so much in vogue I think. Looked like a great game, I love the table too

If SP isn't in vogue, how can we bring it back up in? It's a shame to see hardly any posts, especially with the Waterloo bicentennial this year.

I've been toying with the idea of trying to set up a mini campaign based around the german wars of liberation up to the capture of Paris looking at small actions (Leutenant Gruber leading a group of sharpshooters training up some Landwehr by disrupting French Supply lines for example) - this might be expandable to Capitain Artois and his grognards ferreting arund the fringes of the French advance towards Quatre Bras.

My problem is finding opponents and the time to play - I could do it solo but I don't really have the space to set up the table at home, need to find someone wanting to play who has a basement with purpose built wargames table...

Sounds good - more games is definitely the way to go. Nice ideas around the 1815 setting. Good luck with the venue hunt!
