V&B wing scale is so well suited to AWI - I really loved playing Paul's Camden, Cowpens and Guilford Courthouse scenarios - some of the most fun games I played, even if I did only have a 33% win:loss ratio  Smiley

I look forward to using Paul's Redcoats in some actions against Lafayette, Rochambeau and the French expeditionary force sometime soon......was that subtle enough Paul  Grin

Great report! Also, like the layout.  Thumbs up

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Running out of superlatives, but simply well done! I was a re-enactor in the 200th recreation, so it was a great revisit to one of the most interesting battles of the war. Bravo!  Thumbs up

Thanks All

The Battle of Guilford Courthouse has a very special place in my personal wargaming history.

The Christchurch Wargames club put on a refight of Guilford Courthouse to mark the American bicentennial and a teenage lad turned up to watch. I had been dabbling in wargaming up until that point, but after spending the entire day fascinated by that game I was hooked.

For a variety of reasons I focused on other periods until a couple of years ago. Then I found the wonderful Pendraken AWI range and Greg Novak's Wing scale Volley & Bayonet variant.

I was very pleased to be able to mark both the 235th anniversary of the battle and my 40th year of wargaming appropriately.

To top it off last year I got to meet and play against one of the organisers of the 1976 refight and thank him for ensuring I got to enjoy this amazing hobby.
