A 28mm game of AWI using the Black Powder rules and a scenario from the "Rebellion" supplement.
As usual I am about 5 years behind the times and this was my first game of Black Powder.
This scenario is actually Chatterton's Hill, Washington's right flank at the battle. The formidable Bronx River stands between the rebel scum and the King's justice.
A British unit crosses the ford and enters melee with some levy which handles them roughly and sees them retire back across the river.
White Plains belongs to the King again!
A close game going down to turn 11 of 12. The US almost held out.

As by now is well known, to any student of higher military tactics, Sir Hiffin's defense of Boswell's Cross repelled the Frisian horde and also captured their King.
In the following negotiations with the Frisian holy man (the King's brother), it was revealed they took this mission because the Father Oswall had a vision that they should come here with their people to fullfill his brother's destiny of "saving a kingless land". This all sounded rather convenient to Sir Hiffin, but this Father Oswall had a key to a nearby ancient dwarven armory. Father Wolfgang had also had dreams that we would need these weapons to defeat the dark forces that were behind the start of the civil war. All the stars were aligned. We made treaty with the Frisians that we would enter this armory together and share its bounty. A simple plan on parchment...
When their leaders fall, the remaining orcs morale breaks and they scatter down the passages.
