Wotiff's Bend, demo game for The Other Partizan
I am back from the seaside and The Other Partizan is just around the corner, so it is time to start planning my game. This time it will still be AWI, but a hypothetical scenario to allow me to fit lots of colourful toys on the table. The rough map for the 10' x 6' battle is shown below:
The Crown army is moving to attack in the hope of turning Washington's flank. A Division of Hessians will advance towards the bridge and mill, while a flanking force including British light and grenadier companies has marched around to the west and will approach the ford.
The scenario, while fictional, features aspects of a number of real AWI battles including White Plains/Chatterton's Hill, Brandywine/Chadd's Ford, Hubbardton and Bound Brook.
I won't be able to set this up before the show as it is larger than my usual table, but I'm sure it will all go together OK! :-)
