Last week myself and Fran played a game of Posties new FIW skirmish rules that he's made up, they're quite a simple set of rules but made for a real fun game. Most of the figures are from Redoubt Enterprises and some even belonged to the Lurker himself before he through a paddy and sold them to Postie!
The game started with a duel, the winner could chose the sides, either The Colonials or the Indians.
The duel finished with Francis laying in agony from a shot to the chest, which he later died from! he he!
And I chose the Indians........
The Colonial homesteads
We've tried a different approach for the report on this battle, it's more story like,
check out Fran's blog for the Settlers side of the story.
I am Askook the leader of my tribe, more white men have
invaded our land, they must be destroyed. While my first warband led by my son Rowtag sneaked through the woods his son-in-law the idiot Hurrit tripped and fell, firing his musket. This alerted the settlers to our oncoming attack and our surprise attack was no more.
Rowtag sent the musket armed braves out to attack the settlers as quickly as they could,
while he led 3 warriors Powwaw, Nootau and Hurritt around the back and side of the first building.
Machk (in the white coat) kills his first ever white man.
I, Askook then led my warriors out to attack on the other side of the village.
Brave Makkapitew was shot and died outside of a barn, while Rowtag and Nootau chased a little one.
Powwaw tried and failed to catch a pig.
After killing his first white man, Machk takes his first scalp.
Another two of my braves join the ancestors, Brave Abooksigun. and Brave Keme.
It is not going as planned, Brave Makhk is also shot.
The white men are all running back to their fort, but they are good shots,
Brave Togquos joins the ancestors.
Chansomps and Nosh fire at the white men, while trying to take control of the wagon laden with supplies.
Another white man falls, while Achak tries to kick in the door of a house.
Rowtag decides to leave the little one to Nootau's bow and tries to catch a pig himself.
Nootau, is killed by a strange shaped gun.
Pajackok, moved to the cover of a tree but was still shot down.
Finally our shots hit true, two white men fall, as they run to the fort.
Another white man dies at the hands of my braves.
The Warband move out to take scalps, and claim another white man's life.
I fire the building, they will pay the price for killing my braves.
Kestejoo takes control of the wagon and starts to lead to back to our village.
After capturing the pig and some food, Rowtag's warband advance.
Segenham and Taregan move up and Taregan fires his musket.
More Scalps are taken.
A last white man joins his gods.
We have gained plenty of supplies and killed and scalped many white men, it is true
we have lost too many braves so it is time for all to return to the village, after the successful Raid on Blackrock.
