Emperors Legion 7 Years war colonial game in India.

A reminder to all that the Emperors Legion is meeting this Sunday the 9th October. The historical group are putting on a WRG 7YW colonial game set in India. The Forces of the French East India company will be fighting hard to stop a hostile take over bid by the English East India company, hopefully if I remember to bring my camera we'll have some happy snaps to go along with the battle report.
The Fantasy, 40K and war machine guys will be there too.

So come one and all.

And just a reminder the November meeting is on Sunday the 13th, and the December meeting is on Sunday the 8th. Hours are from 1000 to 1600.
Our address is the PYCC centre, 100 station street Penrith. Parking is at the rear of the hall. We are about a 10 min walk from Penrith station.

just a few happy snaps.

Just a few happy snaps from a game held a few days ago. French and British armies in India (And not a camel gun or Elephant to be found(:). French army had 12 battalions of tough, but mainly raw troops with a few hordes of irregulars. The British, 3 battalions of English Foot and 4 Native infantry. Using WRG we were. We also used a new turn sequence we have been experimenting (and actually made the game flow a lot better) with and some house rules regarding irregulars, such as irregulars fired on by regular non-raw artillery count any casualties as double for all reaction tests.

Cheers,
