Guilford Courthouse

I dusted off my 28mm AWI collection this week and staged a refight of the AWI battle of Guilford Courthouse at the club. I took the Americans after Laurence opted for the British in his first game using the Black Powder rules.

The game fitted nicely on to a 6 x 8 foot table, and played through in around 2 hours with a nice tight finish. The scenario I worte needs a very small amount of tweaking to toughen up the American 2nd line, but otherwise the game seemed to follow history pretty well. I think the balance of special rules used for each troop type was about right, although I think we forgot to apply the Steady rule on a couple of occasions.

Thumbs up to Black Powder!
