Black Powder In Georgia

Andy and I tried out Black Powder - he too thinks it has some wierd rules but as always his a gamer and like everybody compares it to CLS, Which seems to drive everybody crazy. Anyway will post pics from
the game. I know Bill Gilchrist from Scotland was very pleased that I was "converting" to these rules.
Nah its only a pick up game and was handy and I wanted to do something different.
Finally Pictures I found for this game -

the initial Brunswick Cavalry charge against my front line units










Andy Charged the horse guns running them over and breaking the battery


Where upon on my phase i turned half the battery and enfiladed the impetuous russian battalion with Cannister at close range and broke them withh devasting fire the survivors went screaming back to their lines in dismay.

The left flank held in spite of a surprise cavalry charge.
