Our Muskets and Tomahawk game at HISTORICON was loads of fun. Thanks to Nick and Jeff who helped me set it up and run it. But most importantly we had 6 great players who really made the evening fun. It was great to see the characters of Captain Dalyell, Maj Rogers and Chief Pontiac come to life on the battlefield. All in all it was a draw with Pontiac achieving his SubPlot and preventing the British from achieving their Plot and CPT Dalyell and the Commander of the British Lights both achieving their subplots and avoiding the 50% casualty mark necessary for the Indian victory plot. I apologize for my poor picture quality. My tripod was broken and I need to be schooled on the importance of f ratings.

Spent my Sunday finishing up the terrain in preparation for our Muskets and Tomahawk game at HISTORICON. This year we are recreating the Battle of Bloody run since it is almost exactly 250 years since that fateful early morning on July 31, 1763 when Captain Dalyell sallied from the besieged Fort Detroit to punish the insolence of the Native Americans. Here are some shots of my home made terrain. Happy to answer questions about how I made it. Not really hard at all. First we need about 20 feet of field dividers/hedges or fencing. I was a little short so made about 40 of these 5" beauties to be able to make enough to recreate the battlefield.
