Really beautiful figures. Thanks for posting.

From the blog -

"This is a fictional and solo affair using my newly reconstituted "Saratoga Campaign" Brunswick Germans (and units of historically attached Hesse-Hanau) against American opposition."


This scratches my itch – beautiful terrain and figures (on rounders too). Hypothetical scenario overlaid onto an "historical template" – a new battle problem based on an "old theme".

It the past couple weeks we've now seen two well-done, what-if scenarios posted for black powder era gaming on TMP. Here's another that was featured on the forum -

So this is what it looks like, using historical armies in an historical setting. Well done. :-)

HG, this juices gamers – well, make that the "gamer side" of many of us historical gamers.

The historical context is apparently there, but the first clue to "come hither" being the apparent energy invested in a classy game presentation too.

After the first dice start rolling nothing historical transpires beyond historical happenstance, but the immersion of all the historical overtones revealed on the tabletop still conspires onto the gaming at hand.

I'm not saying this as "lecture", ok? Just reiterating what you've posted –
