An Irish Reject on tour Part 2: AWI 1756 "Fort Lee" Batrep......

.......with the Rejects! 

Whilst over in Kent attending Salute 2016, meeting mates and rekindling my love of easily accessible fast food, Postie put on an evening game for me and some available Rejects (even cooked me dinner before the game).

The game was a small skirmish between British and French forces, the French raiding and the British retreating to protect their citizens and Fort Lee! The rules are very simple where the D20 is king. Roll high or die!

Order of Battle
British
British Colonel (CiC - John)
   44th Line (16 Figures)
   60th Line (Royal American) (20 Figures)
   80th Light Infantry (12 Figures)
Special Character (Indian)
Civilians (30 Figures - Some armed with Rifles)

French
French Colonel (CiC -Me!)
   Bearn Line (20 Figures)
   Campagnes Franch de la Marine (12 Figures)
   Trans Rivienes Militia (12 Figures)
Indian Chief
Special Character (Indian)
   Indian Warband (12 Figures)
   Indian Warband (12 Figures)



The initial set up........


Postie has all his ducks in a row........


Fort Lee, otherwise to be known as kindling.......


The blacksmith shoeing the commanders horse, speedy exit may be required......


We had hidden movement markers.............


What lurks beneath.........


Lovely scenery and vignettes everywhere.......


Warm hands...........


The citizens unaware of the danger.........


More damn markers.........


And we begin with the attack on the bridge, the only point of crossing........


The initial volley clears the bridge and the British backbone.......


The now unguarded bridge..........


The British (Rays arm) run towards the Fort.........



Surjit who had an Indian warband under his command (was given no extra troops due to acting like a little girl with them), Lee "Cake Eater"Hadley and Postie contractual (in blood) shot.......


John who taught he was in command, Ray who acted like he was in command and the gentleman with a hint of the pyromaniac about him Richard........


When you fire and want to reload you get a little marker........


Militia and Indians crossing.........


Some of the cards reveal their units........


The Bearn Line Regiment........


Compagnies Franche de la Marine........


Richard trying to set fire to the building..........


The bridge is becoming a bit of a log jam......


Traffic is backing up...........


Never got a cake myself........


One that Lee didn't get.........


Shameful, that's his third.........


Ray is still retreating.........


Richards pyromania is coming along nicely........


The French advance more and more, no British in sight......


These two ended up playing ring a ring a rosie, Surjit didn't even scalp anybody..........


The British finally make a fight of it......


Ray giving his troops the finger..........


The smoke of gunpowder, the fog of war.......


Up close and personal..........


Richards been at it with the torches again and such a nice chap too.......


A good game with friends, a victory to the French, 45-17 I believe, it was all that burning and scalping and of course the French tactical leadership!

Good to see everyone again, have a game and a couple of nights later a chinese and a few beers!

Coming back through customs was a bit of a nightmare, set off metal detector and had my bag contents perused by a gentleman who wanted to know what the little bits of metal were? I felt violated and not in a good way!
