This time I would command some Natives and fight alongside Chris against Mark. Steve was Umpiring again to make sure we had the rules right.
A fairly open table again 6 feet deep and 4 feet wide.
Chris commanded a group of 24 Militia and 12 Indians, I had the other 12 Indians and 8 Jaegers.
Meanwhile those damned rebels under Mark had a formation of 24 Militia and another of 16 Militia along with a 6 man militia skirmish unit and another of riflemen.
52 Yankees vs 56 Tories and Indians.
Move one and the Tory Militia, Jaegers and the first group of Indians got forward really quickly, the Yankee militia advancing a little more slowly towards the fenced orchard in the middle of the table.
After much moaning Steve checks the deck and realises he has forgotten to put the number 5 cards in for these two units. Much grumbling but perhaps they might join the game now.
Meanwhile the other group are still off table working themselves up to join in the action.
Chris's Indians bypass mine and get stuck into the Militia whilst his Tory militia marches over the hill and angles itself to volley the rebel militia where it cant return fire. With two almost destroyed units though its all feeling a bit too little too late.
