So to prep for the game at Partizan I wanted a game so we could iron out the unit stats and make sure everything worked with the rules etc.
We have yet to find a bespoke set that capture what we are looking for so Black Powder is our fall back set with enough flexibility and most of the players having used them before they will give us a decent game.
We use a modified version of Black Powder whioch gives us a much closer game to the one we are looking for. Details elsewhere on the blog.
First things first though, cakes! This week was mainly Battenburg and cornflake buns. Nice.
The British have three brigades of foot, the outer two having one battalion of Queens and 2 of company troops whilst the middle unit has 2 quenns (European) regiments. Two batteries of guns support eh Foot whilts two brigades of Horse cover the open left flank, each with one Queens regiment, one Native Light Cavalry and one Native irregular cavalry.
The Sikhs occupy a walled village, The 6 battalions of regulard with 2 batteries of guns in the cnetre, the two brigades each of 8 battalions on the left and a horde of cavlry on the right, circa 8 regiments.
Wiht the stats giving the British regiments all the historical advantages they had and the Sikhs holding the walled the village and having the numbers it should balance out quite well.
A fun game which has given me some ideas for tweakign the artizan show game and provided some good fun for all concerned too.
Thanks chaps see you at Multan (Newark) soon.
