Kennesaw Mtn Wargamers Game Day

Dont have any pics but today was another day of gaming and socializing with the Kennesaw Mtn Wargamers. They had a huge turnout today 11 gamers
While Mark Luther ran a Sharp practice AWI game in 15mm - Link is below

 Daniel's force consists of 3) groups of 8 Light Infantry under Lt. Maurice Hinchey, Ensign Eliot Engel and Sgt Joseph Crowley. These troops are considered Good quality, Regular Infantry, Musket armed with bayonets. They are capable of Platoon Volleys. Good troops gain a die/5 men when firing.
The other unit under John consists of a 9 man group of Queens Rangers Hussars under Lt Gerald Nadler and 2) groups of 12 Queens Rangers Light Infantry under Capt Edolphus Towns and Sgt Robert Duffy. The mounted troops are considered Average quality, Provincial Dragoons, armed with sabers and pistols only. The Foot units are also Average quality, Provincial Infantry, Musket armed, with bayonets.
All troops may operate in Skirmish Order. Ignore the first Kill and take a point of Shock instead.

This is a 15mm Sharp Practice AWI game played at Bill Amick's in Jan 2012.
The basic premise of this game was that both the rebels and Crown forces were out looking for some supplies in the same area in late Fall 1780 in Virginia. The scenario is basically the Foraging one from TSS rules with a rocky, wooded ridge between the farms.
Rob and Brian were the Rebels and Daniel and John Ford the Crown units. It was an extremely even game with almost mirror terrain on both sides of the ridge.
The Objectives were the same for both sides:
You have been ordered into the area with a supply wagon to search both farms in order to seize any food that may be found there. Your forces begin the game on blinds on Edge 1/2. Searching each farm building is a task with a value of 20 points. Each group of eight men searching rolls a D6 for the cost of 2 Action Dice. Once the total rolled reaches 20 they roll a D6 and consult the SEARCH chart. (which is from the TSS supplement)

SEARCH Chart

DiceResult
1Nothing to be had.
2Small amount found. It will take 1 group a cumulative task roll of 10 to load.
3Not bad. Loading these supplies will require a total of 20 points.
4Abundant quantities. Loading this up will require 1 group to reach 30 points
5Bountiful supplies. Too much for the wagon. Send a messenger to bring a second wagon. Roll a D6 on each Coffee Break after his departure. A total of 30 will see the second wagon arrive on the road on the relevant table edge.
6Enemy occupied! 1D6 + 6 men are guarding the farm and will immediately enter into melee


Bill, Greg and I discussed and organized our current and future forces for our French Revolutionary Wars - Italian Campaign 1796-1800.

Greg donated Austrian infantry in hasket? and Austrian Light Cav in hasket? to my Army of Austrians. I am already trying to inventory mmy collection and its extensive contribution to the campaign, while Bill gave me a Napoleon dismounted figure to put on an artillery gun base.
