Road to Waterloo

Another test game of the proposed 'Waterloo' rules, with the French, consisting of Tel and Tony, assaulting a village defended by the British and Spanish of Martin and Jim. The village spans a river, crossable by troops but with a bridge in place for easier crossing.

Victory conditions are simple... who ever holds the village at the end of the game is the winner.

Nile Campaign pt2

The campaign continues with a few extra wrinkles added to the rules, in order to increase Blemmy and Boukoloi participation. They can now get Victory Points by raiding the four Nile squares south of the Delta. Plus siege rules added so that the three cities are now vulnerable even with garrisons in place.

All the current activity appears to be around the western side of the Delta, apart from the Blemmyes who are east of Memphis. Slaves are besieging Alexandria, meanwhile the Sassinids had mistaken their position and attacked the Romans who were hiding  in the Delta instead.
