AWI BLACK POWDER - BATTLE OF ORISKANY 1777

In Tribute to the SEWSC Lads - Might run this game Friday night (albight a slighty different verison and ahistorical) Based off Blenheims to Berlins Blog http://blenheimtoberlin.blogspot.com/2012/02/awi-black-powder-battle-of-oriskany.html

Pics will Follow on a stormy night the Relief column failed to make enough head way as the regulars with the column were overly aggressive and were out flanked by Native American Warbands.
However the 2nd brigade Militia were able to sieze part of the hamlet in vicious fighting.
While the Regulars crushed one Warband to there front. They neglected to fight decisively to their rear
and on a Bloodthirsty Charge with a reroll were sent screaming into the woods running with their scalps intact. The British were more heavily reinforced than had previously been reported nd the hamlet provided sufficient cover for an ambuscade by British forces.
The First Militia Brigade were caught in March column as they attempted to force their way across the bridge by weight of numbers and came up short against Butlers Rangers.
Oh the Onieda Indians had a stamina of 1 when they should have had a stamina of 4 and therefore melted into the woods after an earlier break test failure as per RAW

It was a fun game well worth a continued use of these Fun rules.
Might define Brigades by attributes in the future to avoid confusion.

Next opportunity might be the 16th for a refight.
