Well, victory for the evil duo of Jack & Amy. A different game to normal DBA as
obviously there’s a lot more shooting. Strange how only one of the casualties was Line Infantry(My Militia). We did not use any rules for units that have multiple recoils though & I think this as a mistake. The combat factors were very similar for both armies, leading to very few doubling of scores & destruction of elements.
Maybe next time we’ll set something in place. However Jack did say that he enjoyed this Horse & Musket style game over Ancients/Medievals. Mmm possibly Napoleonics beckon for him?
