I decided to copy John and see how TSATF works for the AWI. A five man group of Indian scouts and two 10 man units of Hessian grenadiers are marching down the road with the intention of burning down a trading post that is giving aid and comfort to the rebels.

The pro rebel Indians spring an ambush and both Indian groups lose a figure, but the ambushed Indians killed the pro rebel Indian leader.

Pro Brit Indians close to melee and the pro Brit Indian leader is killed right off the bat, however they still win the melee and force their enemy off the field.

Militia hiding in the woods decide it is time to spring their ambush, and gun down two Hessians, who go in with cold steel. The Hessian leader --and CiC -- falls in the first round of melee, but the Hessians win the position. The uncommitted Hessian unit shakes out in support and moves into the wood line. The engaged Hessians make a second charge against the militia and close without their officer. It is more than the militia can stand, and they flee the field.

Hessian morale has held every turn (perhaps they did not like their officer) and the objective is in sight…

It has been years since I have played, so I find myself referring to the rules a lot. The F&IW supplement looks like it has a lot of potential, but I wanted to give the original set a go and see how it worked.

The pics are in reverse order to the story. LMK if the pics are public or not.

That link is generic and takes me to my camera roll.

TSATF is "nothing but" a toolbox to run all kinds of games in all kinds of etas. And that's its beauty.
My intent is indeed to change as little as possible using the book rules.
The beauty of this approach is that you can use "superb" ratings (British) or "average" ratings (Egyptian).
Your Hessians seemed to be fine troops. grin

I wanted to say, your "narration" at the beginning was pretty good too. I get into details when I do that.

Still 'learning' how to load pics/images, (not a comp guy) my previous Forum I could just 'upload' directly from your comp. or flashdrive.

Thanks for the comments. Part II will be coming when I get around to playing it. That's one of the nice things about a permanent table.

I like the caption " allies close into melee." grin Those darn University of Dayton allies are such rascals!

Great looking game!
