To those confused by the blog's name it is named after General Ulysses Grant, one of the Generals in the American Civil War. It is my blog of Wargaming at the Grimsby Wargames Society and wargaming in general including wargames shows.
Wars of the Roses, Anglo-Dutch Wars and Colonials 1st February 2010
View of the top floor of the Grimsby Wargames Society.
A Wars of the Roses game. Players were Paul Robinson, John Ogden and Mark Alcock. Thats Mark in mid-grin on the right.
A close up of some figures that look strangely like knights to me.
Steve Mercer's Dutch Fleet.
Andy Hamilton's English Fleet.
Colonials: Myself and Dave Hewins were the fuzzie-wuzzies while Tim Smith and Dave Tuck were the British. On this photo some of my fuzzie-wuzzies had gone straight on to attack Tim's soldiers who had only just started moving. However my little band of fuzzie-wuzzies found themselves right in front of one of Tim's field guns.
Here the British move up with their attack and head for us fuzzie-wuzzies. You can see Tim on the left with Dave T minus head on the right.
The objective of this game was for the British to get to the well. They did not and so lost the game just in time for tiffin.
The Colonial game was played using the Black Powder rules from Warlord Games.
