Recruits is a month away!
Next month at Recruits in Lee's Summit, Missouri, I'll be helping the convention's Guest of Honor, The Baron, showcase his Fistful of Lead skirmish rules. I'll be showing off the new pending Horse and Musket variant. The games will be smaller in size - but not in scale - than my usual set-ups, so I plan to run a couple different scenarios to highlight the versatility of the rules and the period. OK. . . so I'm limiting the "period" to the French and Indian War era of the Horse and Musket period, but there is versatility nonetheless!
The first scenario comes from the new Horse and Musket book; it is set in the French and Indian War and is a classic raid on a colonial farmstead. The map for this game is shown above.
The second game planned also comes from the Horse and Musket book, but is set during the American Revolution. Just changing the troops involved makes it work perfectly for the French and Indian War, too. Here's the map for this game:
Looks like there could be an ambush involved : )
I just have a few figure bases to finish and some terrain to fuss over, then we'll be all ready for the debut of Fistful of Lead: Horse and Musket.
