I took the exact same list as last week: 10 Scots, a Scottish Lieutenant, 6 Indians and 9 Militia. British Steve took 2 units of Rangers, a Ranger Lieutenant and a unit of Virginia Provincials.
Opposing us were about 45 Indians, because the French were too busy eating and making love with their faces to show up.
After rolling for missions, side plots and weather the game was ready. The Anglo force had engagement and needed to kill 2/3 of the Indians, while the Indians had raid and needed to burn 4 buildings. Three of which were clustered together near our board edge, and the other was near their board edge.
The Ranger Lieutenant's side plot was Capture - he had to kill an enemy in melee, thus capturing him, and leave the table with his prisoner. The Scot Lieutenant, Campbell, had Emotive- the English morale card could not be played, else he failed.
Indian Steve's Sachem, Chief "Hides- Behind Rock" was a Spy- he could not be in the Anglo's sight at the end of the game. Matt's Sachem, Three Feathers, was a Usurper - he could not be within 4" of this own troops at any time. Untrustworthy folks, these natives!

*crack crack* The Huron on the ridge and Iroquois in cover began trading shots, but the Iroquois kept their calm and killed two Huron outright. The rest of the cowards fled without further fight.
When the powder smoke cleared, the target Indians were gone, leaving their dead wallowing in the water. They quickly bled out.
