Happy Birthday George at the Battle of Monmouth

This battle was fought using Wilderness Wars Rules 2nd Edition. 15 mm figures.
This was a hard fought battle. There was no standing about, as troops came in, they went directly into battle. As before this was a battle of A and B class troops. Causalities were huge. Whole regiments would loose half their strength in a single turn. Charges, counter charges, flanking movements were the norm. In all this chaos, with some new rules, high combat, and out right questions of “can I see him”, that would turn a sides flank and ensure victory, Todd stood above it all as his game scenario took on a life of it’s own. Passions were high and figures were leaving the table as dead, not in rout. It was as if the temp around the table was a historical 100 degrees. In the end the British pounded out a victory. Their rear guard held, those grenadiers winning another battle ribbon on their standard.
