Sunday I stopped by Critical Hit Games in Abingdon, MD for a game of Muskets & Tomahawks – part of an ongoing effort to bring historical gaming to those who only know the Games Workshop universe.
A force of Canadians was raiding into British territory with the intent to kill or drive off some settlers (The Slaughter mission). A force of British regulars were nearby and deployed to protect the settlement (The Protection mission).

The battle swung back and forth….first the Canadians routed a unit, then the British routed a Canadian unit. Ultimately, the Canadians drove the British from the field and razed the settlement.
Unfortunately, I usually forget to take pictures. The game generated some interest but not sure I gained any recruits….this time. The Saga game Jim and I ran last weekend did result in a couple of players purchasing Saga armies.
