Having seen Little John recent games using his 40mm Prince August figures with the classic Charge rules.
He has used the teasers from Charles S Grant Raid St Mihel booklet. I thought it was time I did the same based on the Annexation of Chiraz book.
I plan to play teasers 1, 3, 4 and 5 using the Charge rules. My units consist of 40 foot figures and a Mounted CO. These will be broken down into 2 * 16 man companies and one 8 man grenadier company. The Grenadier companies can be combined. Cavalry will operate in 11 figure squadrons. With 2 units making a regiment.
All Officers, standards etc will count as foot figures and will count towards volley fire/melee etc.
So this lunchtime I set up my table ready for a game on Friday. I have set the table to be able to play teasers 1 and 4 - back to back.
The early morning sun shines on Petreville (OK its the spot light in my basement). It is a pleasant scene looking south across the village and the Arsenal
The Arsenal is garrisoned by a company of the Saint Augur militia . Who task is to protect the Arsenal. Here 2 guards are seen vigilantly watching the approaches from the North
On this bright morning the local clock strikes 9.00 o'clock and the change of guard can be seen under the watchful eye Mayor Etouffee who keeps the garrison on their toes with his fiery language. He turns muttering how this posting to the back of beyond leaves him cold and his frustration with inaction is clearly etched across his face.
A wagon with a weeks production of Pepper Sauce leaves the Arsenal and the driver is bid farewell by one of the local ladies of the night.
Mayor Etouffee lifts his head as the breeze from the North brings the heavy sent of an aroma oh so familiar. A smile creeps across his face as he turns and shouts - 'There is the smell of cavalry sh*t in the air my friends, I think today will be quiet tasty after all'
