I’ve decided to put some armies together for the French and Indian War and the American War of Independence. For scenarios I am using the book Seven Steps to Freedom by Charles Wessencraft. It outlines 7 phases of the American Rebellion starting with it’s roots in the F&IW. The first scenario is Braddock’s Defeat and the Battle of Turtle Creek/Braddock’s Field or simply Braddock’s expedition.
The rules used in my games will be A Gentleman’s War. Normally this is a head to head game and the card play really only lends itself to that style of play. However, if I get a number of players around the table, I will probably use a card system more similar to The Sword and the Flame. The Wessencraft book game rules use a low figure count per regiment at around twelve figures per similar the A Gentleman’s War so this has turned out to be an excellent purchase.
Here is a couple of shots of the first few regiments.
This is how I can normally get a lot of figures painted and on the table. I plan on painting to the scenario. So I have 4 Indian Warbands to pain, another 3 English regiments and 3 continental regiments. I also need one or two light cannon depending on how I decide to crew them.
The Wessencraft book is a great source for scenarios that should work well with AGW. I hope to do the Saratoga one this spring just a few more Brunswick units to paint.
Glad to hear others are finding his work useful. I also have his Pike and Shot book. Similar rules and scale. That book would also work for AGW if only there was a Pike and Shot supplement for it as well. Looking forward to seeing your game come to life. I hope you post pics on the AGW FB group.
