2017 - Number 19

SNS Group:
Brandywine, 1777

The SNS Group has been running a series of games each quarter, picking a period and rule set in advance to allow members to build up forces and study up on the rules.

The current theme has switched to 28mm American War of Independence, using the Black Powder rules and the excellent Rebellion! supplement from Warlord Games.

Washington's Line Deployed Along the Creek

This month's scenario was Brandywine, 1777, and hosted by Mike Cannon and Gary Rhay. They employed a number of clever special rules to reflect the historical British flank march, which outflanked Washington's positions along Brandywine Creek.

The game was well attended, and saw lots of action across the table. Some highlights included a brave last stand by some Continentals on the American right, an impressive firefight downstream and several blunder rolls at critical times.
