These finally arrived and I gave then a quick try and look to do the job. Colour range is a little bit limited, so wont be able to use for all flags. David (B)

Been a bit of an hiatus on this project (loss of my Mother over the summer of 2023); but now I am drawing together some scenario's for a mini campaign over 3 or 4 days with a couple of wargaming friends for the Spring of next year (2024).

If anyone has any sources for suitable options, please do point me in the right direction. I already have Barry's "Blood and Sand" from his "A Taste of Victory" scenario book. I also have a couple from Stephen Danes "Lace Wars" (Scenario book 2).

I also have excellent source material in a range of books including the recent Pen & Sword release, the Helion book, plus others such as Routh, Smithers etc.

I recall a scenario about Teviot's ill fated expedition into ambush on Jews Hill/Mount (possibly in a back edition of Wargames Illustrated), but have not been able to track that down - be grateful for any info on that specific material.

Thanks in anticipation for assistance. Will hopefully document the AARs for sharing.

Regards

Just found that Ray Rousell's "Don't Throw a 1" was the source of Teviot's ill fated sortie onto Jews Hill/Mount - more at https://onelover-ray.blogspot.com/2016/ ... -last.html. Looking for an OOB for this scenario please (realise it was done back in 2016 for Donnybrook rules).

Belated HNY to all following this thread!

Post the Festive Season, my Tangier's mini campaign is getting up a head of steam for playing around Easter time this year:

I have finished reading several (new to me) sources, in addition to the Helion book and the extracts from the History of the British Standing Army etc these include:

The Tangier Campaign by A J Smithers
Tangier - England's Lost Outpost - EMG Routh (facsimile)
Tangier - The Earliest Battle Honour - John Hawkins
Tangier 1682-80 - The First Battle Honour - Various (a facsimile of related army unit histories)

I now have good drafts for 4 scenario's based on the historically recorded engagements; for the largest of which I need to mix in a few more units from my existing collections or top up the Peter Pig collection.
