    Matchlock an Blue Moon

    I thought I’d have a go at the French and Indian Wars with TPL.  So I’ve resurrected my old and eclectic collection of figures for rebasing. These ones are Blue Moon (Indians) and Matchlock French and British.  I’m hoping to get a game with them next week which will be duly reported on my blog.

    Matchlock British Grenadiers

    I’ve high hopes of TPL working well for this conflict. My Indians will be fielded as veteran Commanded Shot and the Compagnies Franches de la Marine as Folorn Hope so it will be quite a small force compared to their opponents.  Shades of Monongahela on the day if their luck’s in.

    Yes, it is The Pikeman’s  Lament.  Sorry about the acronym.

    I got my game of Pikeman’s Lament based on the battle of Monongahela.  Lots of fun and a historical outcome.

    Here are a couple of pics.

    I’ve never heard of those rules.  I’ll have to check your blog when not at work to get a feel.  Always looking for rules for the 18th and 19th Centuries.  🙂

    Written by Dan Mersey and published by Osprey Darryl, very affordable as these things go and covering the 17th and 18th centuries, more or less.  They make for a fun game in my opinion.
