We just had a local convention here in Houston called Owl Con. I spent the first two days just goofing about and buying too much stuff. The third day I ran games and decided to run Song of Drums and Shakos again as it is easy for new players to learn, and always good for some bloody action. We pitted the Grasshoppers against their old friends the Legere, but this time they were introduced to a new foe; the French Dragoons that I recently painted up. The Dragoons made a god showing, especially in melee. We played three games and a couple were cliffhangers, but in the end the Rifles carried the day in all games. I attribute the Rifles new found success to the addition of Private Weeks of the Rifles. Apparently his hands warmed up enough to fire three rounds a minute in any weather. Here are a few snaps, sorry no batreps.
The games were darned bloody!
