Sharps Practice 15mm French and Indian War

Mark Luthur - French and Indian War

 
Excellent game and scenario - Mark puts on a fun game as usual.
 Several shots of the peaceful garrisoned homestead unaware of the devastation soon to come
from raiding Indians and despicable French Canadians



Note the homestead Barn in the fore ground
 


 
Provincial Militia from Fort Necissity

 
Indians

 
another shot of the Provincials (looking to protect the farmers moonshne

 
Blind movement by Indians on the flank

 
Indians ambush unsuspecting Dutch Colonialists coming to rescue their Captains sweetheart

 
Although they had the element of surprise - the Indians lack numbers and
adequate supplies of good powder to do much real damage to the column

 
They soon ran back into the woods

 
Canadians set the Barn on fire

 
Brave Ranger Corporal stops advance of the Dutch to aid
the provincial militia and the other half of the Rangers


 
oops - the fire got to the moonshine in the Vorhees Barn - KABOOM


 
Fire burns intensely



 
French Canadians escape with hostages
 
Canadians beat the provincials in objectives and points set the Vorhees stone house on fire as well
