Bruce kindly put a game of CCN on for me last night. I don't recall the scenario (Veloma?) and we managed to play twice. The terrain set up was interesting with a terrible bit of terrain dividing the British left from the remainder of the field.
In the first game (pictured below) I spent some time bringing the British into a decent formation and felt pretty good, especially with some lucky rolls against some French probes.
Then, suddenly, Bruce had crushed my left wing and I was forced to take the offensive in the middle and right. I won but it was very close run (6-4?).
We switched sides for a second game and I romped to a 6-0 victory. I had great cards which I played competently. But the dice simply rolled my way with three attacks resulting in units disintegrating. I also managed to snag a general on one of those attacks. Bruce took it well (better than I would have!).
Bruce also hauled out some Napoleonic ships he has been painting and rigging. After struggle with string, he switched to cutting lengths of wire, painting them black and gluing them into place. A much better and faster way to get the same effect.
Up next: I have 24 more War of 1812 guys finished and then there are a bunch of goblins that I need to get to. Perhaps I will start today at lunch!
