We recently had our second go at the AWI rules Live Free or die, fun game write up and lots of pictures on my blog here:

Nice battle report and very nice looking troops!

Please see my comment.

Hi Jim, I agree a disorder point for British regulars changing formation seems harsh when say poorly trained militia get exactly the same penalty. It may be something we look to amend but we will want to thoroughly play test it before making any changes.

We're playing a second play test game of those same rules this Sunday, the Germantown scenario.

Many thanks for the above and the battle report, great looking game by the way. My friends and I have had a couple of enjoyable and fun games recently with 'Live Free or Die'. Two main issues have come up though, firstly units disreadarding casualties when taking a morale test and secondly we had a couple of odd occassions with units either caught in the flank or even in march coulumn in melee and deciding how many bases to count. Simply 'lining' up the units in these situations just didn't feel right somehow. Very much looking forward to further reports and any 'house' rules introduced.

Cheers Paul

Thnanks Paul, lets see what the next game brings, maybe worth putting ourselves in that situation and see.
