The Rejects got together yesterday for what will be our one and only practice game of The Battle of the Boyne, for our demo game at Broadside on June 9th. I did want to try and run at least one more game but work, kids, work and general life have all got in the way, (you know what its like?)
The game worked really well, I tried to make it as historical as possible but the dice gods and the Rejects soon changed all of that!!! The Dutch Guard seen above eventually managed to take the village of Oldbridge, but at a huge loss, the Duke of Schomberg was also killed. But that's as far as the history went. The Williamites were way to cautious, which led in the end to a fighting victorious retreat for King James and the Jacobite's. Fran was very pleased!!!!
Look out for Fran's post and Lee's already posted on the game.
I must admit I'm very pleased at how the village of Oldbridge turned out, I wasn't really sure how to make it look like an old 17th century Irish village, but I think it turned out rather well ( blowing my own very large trumpet ....of course!!)
So if you'd like to see a little more of the game, come and find us at Broadside on the 9th, if you can't make it to Sittingbourne then look out for all the pics a couple of days after the 9th.
