This weekend I got to playtest a scenario I had been working on for playing with Kiss Me Hardy, recreating the Battle of Cape Ortegal or Strachan's Action fought in the wake of the Battle of Trafalgar on the 4th November 1805.


In a game that was as much affected by the vagaries of the weather in the Bay of Biscay mixed in with a bit of good old broadside to broadside battering and some frigates getting stuck in as well, much fun was had by all.


If you would like to see how things turned out then just follow the link to the club blog.
