Anyway, the point is that an e-conversation with a friend about the latest version of MacDuff, which appeared as a Quick Reference sheet last June, reminded me that I had meant to give it a more thorough testing in hopes of writing a final, 20th Anniversary edition. Before the turmoil of last year took my mind off it I had been thinking of either the War of 1812 or the early 19thC Atlantican Colonial wars. The only other suitable figures were my Prince August NQSYW troops but I had promised myself to only use them with Charge!.
(I should probably remove the sword from Father Le Loutre.)
Having grown up in Montreal I have tended to associate the period with Wolfe and Quebec or with Lake Champlain and the Great Lakes. Here I am though, living in Nova Scotia since 1980. Nova Scotia where the 1740's and 1750's saw more skirmishes, raids, sieges and battles than any other part of the country did even if most were small actions. So, I spent the day casting and painting and have set the table for a traditional style MacDuff game set in Acadia using Rosmark rebels to fill in for British and Provincial troops.
Look for a report on Tuesday if all goes well.
