Two days after my first French & Indian War Sharp Practice game I found myself down BIG taking part in the So What A Glorious Day event - four games over two days, operating with a partner against two opponents. With a basic 35 point force I was able to use my American Provincials though my Marylanders may have looked more like the 60th Foot having blue not black facings! ;D
Given my lack of knowledge of the French forces and not able to really tell the difference between Milices Canadiennes and Compagnies Franches de la Marine on the table I am afraid my recounting of the battles will be somewhat vague as to who the valiant Provincials were fighting, other than they were either 'neat French' (regulars in uniform) or 'scruffy French'! :D
For my first game against Ian and Brian I was paired up with Jenny and her British Grenadiers and tasked with holding off a French incursion...
That was a fun battle which seemed to swing back and forth. I had thought the French had blown it by leaving their deployment point so badly exposed (so did they from the panicked movement of troops towards it as the Maryland and Grenadier skirmishers got so close to it!), but they almost carried the right flank and may have done except for some brave Fisticuffs from the other Marylanders and (quite surprisingly) the Militia skirmishers who certainly performed above and beyond.
