Brently's visit

My brother brought Brently over to see her Great Grandmother.  She liked looking at my pug Addie.  Now you know why my painting was put on hold for most of the day.

Capitania General de Florida Battle 2

At the Capitania General de Florida battle I was in command of a band of Indian allies (on left) and a company of militia (on the right).

After demonstrating to keep the Britanian attention my C-I-C ordered me to cross a large expanse of clear terrain covered by 2 gun emplacements and a company of rangers to take the left most emplacement (shown to right).

Our move foreword placed my troops in grapeshot range of that gun emplacement and he got a red 9 allowing him first fire. He got 4 hits and when the cards were drawn he got 4 aces, 4 aces!!!!!

I lost my brigade commander, the Indian band leader, my colonial leader and the nco. In one fire phase my entire command staff was wiped out.
Lets just say the day did not go well after that. With 2 game of a 4 game campaign it stands at attackers 0 defenders 2.
