Wargaming - AAR

Played a little wargaming today, a Flames of War game and a Republic to Empire game.

The RtE game was based on the War of 1812 with a allowance of two of us whom have European forces  to get in and play and learn the rules

My Militia Bde (French were Drilled) others were Recruit
We just played a meeting engagement, four brigades each side. Americans two regular brigades and two militia brigade. The British three regular brigades, one brigade having a veteran regiment and one militia brigade. I played a American militia brigade, one drilled regiment and two recruit regiments, no artillery was assigned to my brigade.

British forces moving
It was a first time for most of us playing, so we took thinks slow and had a few learning curves. I had my recruit militia run from the field, but one of them did bloody one regiment before they broke.

My French holding steady ready for advance

While the militia held the right flank, the main fight was on the left, the Americans were holding the upper hand by taking out two British regiments, but they swung their veteran highlanders and caused a cascading moral failure along the left flank.

All in all it was a good time had by all, it was the first time in over a year the club played these rules, there was a lot of people just watching. Everyone is excited to play again.

Next month we will do European theater, so I can't wait to finish my French Bde.
