My final game at the So Glorious A War Sharp Practice event saw Julian and myself up against Brian and Carol. Following on from the last scenario we now had to escort a small group of civilians to safety (if that puts you in mind of that scene in Last of the Mohicans were the British are evacuating the fort and get ambushed, you won't be far off!)
The Maryland Provincial skirmishers operating as two groups with one leader this time pushed up the left flank...
Well that was a bit of a schooling! The use by the French players of their mobile deployment point was excellent and we had certainly been lulled into complacency thinking the French threat would all be from our left when in the end the coup de grace was delivered from the right after they moved their deployment point down and across the table.
Overall a great weekend of Sharp Practice gaming and in a period I hadn't played a game in until two days previous. Thanks to my opponents, unfortunate partners and to David and Phil for organising the event.
