Here is the scenario that the Fencibles will try to test this coming Thursday, regular infantry and a few guns in the wilderness against against a force entirely of light infantry, not a clearing in sight.

Interesting Scenario. I hope the new rules will work well for such an ambush. Especially the command system should be difficult for the British. If I would use HoW, I would make the death of Braddock more likely - perhaps on a roll of 8-12. I used the same for some WPS-Scenarios and it worked well giving the battles a authentic touch.
Might make all the British officers being hit more likely; the Indians were obviously aiming at leaders. I think Washington was the only ranking officer who wasn't hit, and they did shoot at least one of his horses. They also put bullet holes in his clothes.
Played the game tonight, quite pleased with the results. British morale collapsed after 8 turns in a little over 2 hours. It was closer than the actual battle. Not sure when I can post a report as I'm headed out of town tomorrow for 2 weeks, not sure of internet connection, etc. But there will be more French and Indian war battles with these rules!
