Here's the set up for the first games: (Photos by Andy, Beth, and me)
|Andy, Martin, myself, and Robby about to start.|
|A view of the barn, the fence, and the British stabby-troops at exercise|
|Beth positioned the man in the barn door - "I'll be in here if you need me!"|
|Another view of the table at the start, with the British marshaling.|
|... and attackers attacking. This is one of the places where the forest came right up |
to the fence line.
|These red coats didn't last all that long once it got to hand to hand.|
For some reason, the rifle fire was wretched.
|Andy's Zulus -two sections- head for the door of the blockhouse while my one|
section heads for the open fire, which I intended to throw into the wooden blockhouse,
but fire from the upper floor prevented it.
|This isn't a roofing party but a cheap way of showing that the troops are in the house|
without ripping off the roof.
|Here you can see the new fences, the hasty barricades, and a section of the defenders.|
|Andy's scratch-built blockhouse full on.|
|"There sure are a lot of 'em!"|
I'm not sure what's going on next week at the library; I'm tied up anyway. And... reenacting season is coming up.
