In this refight of the battle of Camden, His Majesty's forces routed the colonial rebels in some style. Despite having some success on the right flank, Gates' "Grand Army" was broken in the centre by the British Regulars and Loyalist colonists.

A nice collection of figures / manufacturers. They seem to play quite well together.

Looks smashing! As usual I am obligated to say that I grew up in Camden, and lived almost on the Hobkirk Hill battlefield.

I now live about 10 miles from Cowpens, which makes me think, why do our British cousins like to play Camden and here in the states we like to recreate Cowpens? ;) For the record I like to do them all.

Beautiful game!

I have been researching and playing this battle recently with Twilight of The soldier kings. I didn't realize there were British Dragoons there, I thought it was just Tarleton?
