More 1775 Rebellion

We had eight guys at the club last night, with four RPGing (gasp!). Chen and Dave played a game of Memoir 44 using microarmour.

Scott agreed to give 1775 Rebellion a go. He chose the British while I played the wiley Americans (or so I like to think). The opening part of the game saw some battle sin New England before I managed to bag Nova Scotia and cause him some major deployment issue.

He cagily hosed my southern strategy and tried to lock up New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I managed to beat this back and the sent an expedition up Lake Champlain to make a mess in Canada.

By the time I managed to end the game, I had enough colonies locked up to win, but just barely as Scott had a late-game rally. Below you can see him winding up to clear the board in disgust! It was a heck of a close game.

Up next: I still have some 1/72 7th cavalry guys and, with the garden winding down, I expect painting to start up soon.
