Black Powder Test Games - Giga bites cafe - River Fight

Had a great time showing Steve Smith from NC and Wes Shores the Black Powder rules at Giga Bites on Saturday afternoon - Pictures to follow of the three test games - It was a fun series of games - Also some pictures of other stuff to be added On Volleyfire VSF

1. French Infantry  vs British Infantry

French repulsed

2. French Infantry and Artillery v. British Infantry and Artillery

French repulsed / British enfiladed one Polish column causing an important break from fire

3. French Brigades of Infantry and Elite Mixed Guards Brigade cavalry with attached artillery


British Brigades of Infantry and cavalry with attached artillery
(Special unit of AA Captain Sharke and his band of rifles just for a change of pace)

Colonel Steve joined in and opened up with a blunder move for Napoleon's Brigade as an important attack stalled.


  1. Don't leave us hanging too long on the pics. Was that Captain Sharke of the Flintloque 30mm series?

  2. Hi Cinncinnatus - Yes it was and he features much more prominently in a Company level refight out of Black Powder today though the KGL with Captain Sharke barely held on to the village of La Haye Saint / Capt Sharke and company broke when overwhelmed by 2 companies of chasseurs and a company of light guard sappers. But the game ended as the KGL pulled out a narrow victory due to extra ammo and a couple extra companies of rifles to defend. That battle happened today Labor Day
