    The third game played at this month’s club meeting was a Black Powder recreation of the Battle for Quebec in 1759.

    If you would like to know more about the scenario and how it played out then just follow the link to the club blog.

    Plains of Abraham is a classic 18th century battle, a clash between regular armies, but small enough to stage in 28mm. I’ve played it several times under different rule sets. No cavalry and not much artillery, but you can add Indians and Rangers. A few hundred Indians were with the French, but Montcalm didn’t use them in his attack; likewise there were a few hundred Rangers with Wolfe’s army, who did not stand in the line on the Plains. It makes a better game if you include the what-ifs, as you did. Great photos and blog write-up.

    You'll shoot your eye out, kid!
