Recruits Is Coming!

I committed today to presenting "Blunder at Turtle Creek" at Recruits in April. "Blunder" will be fought using This Very Ground, of course. I am using the Blood in the Forest scenario from the rulebook but adding a "civilian" twist, and using points to provide  balanced forces.

The  introduction:

"Following Braddock’s defeat on the Monongahela, the Pennsylvania frontier was awash in fire and blood. The French encouraged their Indian allies to raid the farms of the British colonists. As the infiltration of Lakes Indians and Coeur De Bois in French service increased, hostilities escalated. In response, many small excursions of British regulars and their colonial militia counterparts attempted to attack the Indians on their own terms. A nearly-abandoned storehouse on the very fringe of British settlement becomes the scene of the Blunder at Turtle Creek as one of these British counter-raids runs headlong into their intended prey."

I have some terrain work to do over the next couple of weeks. . . I may show some of it in progress if I have time.

See ya!
