The Glade - Muskets and Mohawks AAR

Inspired by the movie, Last of the Mohicans, I set up a scenario where four British units would try and escort the Major's two daughters to Fort New Braunfels. The British force consisted of two units of Regulars, one unit of Colonial Militia, and the escort of Lieutenant Churchill and two scouts. The objective was to enter from the lower right corner of the table and exit the middle left side of the table.
The Brits were deployed in column with the Militia in the lead, one regular unit, the escort, then the second Regular unit.
The game started with three PEFs strung out in front of the column. The first turn saw the far end PEF remain on the ridge while the center revealed itself to be a large war band of 20 Indians. The third PEF moved towards the right side of the column in the woods and was revealed as a smaller band of Indians.
First turn and the battle was starting.

The battle was over but not the game. In Muskets and Mohawks you can't just run off the board to safety. The escort would now play a Chase Encounter and try to escape the pursuing Indians. As there aren't that many figures involved I decided to use Long Rifle, the man to man skirmish rules.
Coming up next...The Chase!


  1. Very tense BatRep. Can't wait for The Chase!

  2. Great report, looking forward to the Chase!!!

  3. I really like Last of the Mohicans and the Soundtrack plays inside my head (used it for many tabletop games or RPGs) while reading this batrep.

    Can't wait to get the rules, but I still have to wait until FNG2 is released.

  4. Cool Batrep "I will find you!"

  5. I just happened to have watched the movie last night and this played out just like the movie. Of course, when you think about it, it played out rather realistically as units fell back from a superior force.

    I also am waiting for FNG before making more purchases.

  6. Excellent report. I need to get these at Cold Wars. I currently working my way through 5150 Star Army, but these looks great. Time to update my shopping list.

  7. Lovely, can't wait for the follow up.
