We played a game of 15mm AWI recently and here are some pictures from the game. The scenario was
a hypothetical battle set in the South. The British have a smaller, but better force (as usual!) and the Continentals have a larger amount of mixed troops. The British objective is to cross the river and destroy the Continental army. They can get some additonal victory points by capturing the town and/or Continental supply wagons & camp. The British have been told that there might be a ford down river from the bridge.
The Continental's must keep their army intact and repulse the British offensive.
|An overview of the battle. The British are starting to move toward the bridge. The Conitentals have positioned|
militia on the hill to the top right (across the river) and are trying to defend the ford. I use a cloth mat with foam hills underneath.
|The British advance! This is the 23rd Regt. of Foot - Royal Welsh Fusiliers. These are Polly Oliver figures.|
They are my favorite 15mm AWI figures, but they are very slim and suffer from a lot of broken bayonets, swords, etc.
|The Hessians came onto the board on turn 4 (we rolled for random entry turns). These consist of old Frontier Miniatures |
Jaegers, Old Glory "von Bose" line infantry and Polly Oliver "von Rall" grenadiers.

|I recently started painting French troops for the AWI. This is a unit of French grenadiers advancing to help the |
|Polly Oliver American Militia defend a rail fence. These troops were soon shaken|
by the Hessian light artillery piece, and forced to retreat.
