'A gaping silken dragon,/Puffed by the wind, suffices us for God./We, not the City, are the Empire's soul:/A rotten tree lives only in its rind.'

Scenario 14...

... Static Defence.

From Neil Thomas' One-Hour Wargames.  This time, it's going to be a 'Horse & Musket' set-up, specifically the War of 1812 in 20mm.  First deployment by the 'Red' force, i.e., British and Canadian.  The 3'x3' playing area incorporates, a town, road, wood, and hill:

The defending force has to hold both the hill and the town, and must deploy 3 units within 12" of the hill, and 3 within 12" of the town.  Below:

the newly mobilised militia move up towards the town, while, below:

a Provincial regiment, and British Army regulars also move into position.

Now, where are the dam' Yankees....


  1. Good stuff - here's hoping they show Cousin Jonathan what's what.

  2. Of course, especially the Lower Canada militia - Vive le Roi!!', the Americans who fought so well with the British Army, and, later, the Irish from the Peninsular. Oh, I love history!
