We played something a bit different Friday, a skirmish from the War of Jenkin's Ear. This mid 18th century war between the Spanish and British in the Americas was fought along the coast of Georgia and Florida and at sea. I've been waiting to get some of these toys on the table for a while now. The fights on the east coast of Georgia were small but had a nifty variety of unit types and the setting was certainly a wild one. I decided to play the Battle of Gully Hole Creek to start. John had the defending Crown forces and I took the invading Spanish. Cool mixture of uniformed militia, Scots, colonial rangers, red coated regulars and native Americans. And the fights were in some pretty messy terrain. Chris Stoesen has a book coming out soon on this conflict with loads of scenarios for land and sea actions. 15mm minis and Sharp Practice rules.

Fantastic work. I spent quite a bit of time on Saint Simons Island whenever I had downtime from academy. Between Gully Creek and Bloody Marsh some nice scenarios with lots of exotic troop types as you mentioned. It's something I always wanted to game but never got around to, glad to see someone else has made it come to life.

+1 to Prince Albert's comments. Your terrain has captured the feel of the battlefield very well, and the visual effect is spectacular. You have a very nice Jenkins Ear-era army.

I'd love to see you reprise the scenario at one of the Florida cons.
