This gaming lark is getting addictive. Another Monday and another game at the Grimsby Wargames Society. Back to the War of the Spanish succession this time to test the new rule amends again. It was also a chance to review the figures that I will be taking to Partizan in a couple of weeks for a game I am involved in. More of that later.
Another good game against my long term opponent Mark and his Anglo Dutch forces. Whereas in previous games Mark had always felt that the three rank units had the advantage, this is the second testing of the rule amends and the second time that we've had a much more balanced game. The French with their smaller frontage can still get two to one but the effect is not so devastating and the morale not so easy to pass (despite my good rolls in the middle of the game).
Very pleased that the club rules are working again for a balanced game and now I can start to concentrate on making them a more public friendly copy. My thanks to Mark for bringing his figures along and giving my French a work out.
The vast majority of the French will be at Partizan on Sunday 31st May. They will be taking part in a large multi-player game organised by Graham through the "A Military Gentleman of the Eighteenth Century" forum and group. There they will be joined by other contingents from the many and various collections of the members including some very well known and respected gentlemen of the hobby.
