Muskets and Tomahawks Game

Played my first game of Muskets and Tomahawks today and really enjoyed it. I've been waiting long enough to play it and I wish i had played it sooner.

There is certain things that will take time to fully get but I'm looking forward to the next one. One thing i was slightly disappointed with is that there is no French Unit that can be made Elite like the Rangers. I would have thought that the Marines could be made this but they are considered just Regulars. The Marines shooting was also disappointing as it's lower than the Canadian Milice.

The put my Rogers Rangers, new Goreham's Rangers and New Mohawk Indian Allies against some Candian Milice and Huron.

We just tried out an engagement as our first attempt and after my Indians doing some good shoot against a larger Indian Unit to being with we stupidly went in hand to hand just to see how it worked out. It didn't end well with my whole Unit getting wiped out.

I had my Goreham's Rangers up front in wood cover and my large Rogers Rangers holding off in the back. The Milice came up close in the open to be met by devastating fire from both my Ranger units causing them to pretty much be a useless unit and didn't stay on the table much after that.

The game end up a win for myself and my British.

I'll want to try out some of the other aspects of the game next time and hope the improvement continues.
