Great game, well photographed. Forgive me, but I couldn't see which rules you used (apologies if it was in the report and I just missed it).

Also, I couldn't resist a smile at the make-up of your 1st Brigade (I realise this was a fictitious formation and used what figures you had to hand):-

* CO, MG Agnew - the highest ranking British officer killed by enemy action in the entire war
* 8th Foot - were scheduled to return to England in June 1775, and ended up spending almost 20 years dispersed in forts around the Great Lakes
* 9th Foot - spent half the war as PoWs being shunted around the central Colonies (apart from a few escapees, such as Lamb, virtually none of the R&F survived Burgoyne's campaign)
* 55th Foot - spent half the war dying of god-knows-what in the Caribbean
* 71st Foot - spent a lot of the war getting captured: Boston (several companies), Stony Point (grenadiers), an incident in the South where Tory militia "turned coat" (sick & wounded), and of course Yorktown (both battalions).

Talk about your "brigade of death"!!!
Ssshhhhh!!!!!
