"…. Von Bülow nervously drummed his fingers along the edge. "Damn allies! For the second week my guys have been eating breadcrumbs and corned beef, and from this warehouse he still carries rum and smoked hams. forces of Burgoyne's army! And we are not soldiers ?! ". For the second week, Bullov's detachment occupied the Blockhouse in a town near Crown Point, guarding the road and the food warehouse, filled to the brim with food. while the road was blocked with slingshots and a checkpoint with an artillery position was erected at it. Yesterday, a new company arrived – the fusilier of the 21st North British. The senior of the 21st took command of the combined detachment, instead of von Bulow…."

Quite the game report, thank goodness that google aloud me to have it translated from Russian to English.

Interesting that so many figures were used with the Rebels & Patriots rules. Looking forward to giving such a game a go at some point.

No pun intended.

Thanks for the link, have never seen that blog before. Nice looking game. Interesting using Rebels & Patriots with that large of a scenario. Agree with GamesPoets, thanks goodness for Google translate.

Played Rebels and Patriots several times. Unlike other skirmish rules, it can handle several units and players in one game. It's mechanisms are abstract with a toolbox approach. As a result it could easily pass as a regimental rule set to those taking an open mind approach.
