(Right, second attempt… The first seemed to have been hit by 'The Bug'!)

Here is a bat rep from my last game of Black Powder, using miniatures from Alternative Armies and recounting the assualt on an Orc force by some nefarious Ferach and Todoroni.

Great AAR!

Thanks for posting

That was great fun! Whatever else a set of horse and musket rules should do, imo it must show how difficult it was to follow up success with fresh troops.

Everyone is told to always keep a reserve, but precious little is said about how to get it to the right place at the right time, which I suppose is the art :) Lord knows I haven't cracked it.

Looking forward to more and thank you for the nod!

Pleased you both enjoyed it!

You're welcome Bob. I meant it when I said I owe you for the inspiration! Hopefully next time I'll have painted enough models to have the required reserve!

It is nice that you found a way to enjoy your 25s on a smaller surface.

Fishbuckle24 Jul 2017 3:15 p.m. PST

That's a good point. The surface I used was 4x3. I have two boards I lay on top of the table to make a 6x4 area, but the space around wasn't clear for me to do so. Even so, I would still keep the unit sizes and half measurements as I think the rules work better with the reduced measurements on anything other than the biggest of tables!

Awesome battle rep! Love the figs. and scenery too.

Thanks, Baranovich, I'm pleased you liked it. It was a simple set up on a small table but I am hoping for something a bit more grand when I have more figures painted!

Great to see such a lovely set up, can't beat Slaughterloo!!

Hi Jambo

Thanks for your comment. i've got bigger and better things lined up too! Just as soon as i get more of my lead pile painted! I have been using Black Powder recently, but agree that Slaughterloo is a unique and interesting set of rules.
