FIW game.



Last night some of the lads got together for a game set during the French and Indian war.

Two units of rangers, Rogers Rangers and Gorham's Rangers were charged with escorting a young lady through hostile territory. In other words get her from one side of the table to the other with out her being captured by the French or the Indians.

Indians taking up ambush positions along the road.

The rangers got to almost half way across the table when the battle become a big shooting match and with the honours being split the Indians and the French started to pull back first. Unfortunately time was just about up so the game was called a draw.
