Muskets & Tomahawks at Barrie's

British: Barrie & Renfrey
French: JohnM & Jim

The two sides had different objectives as is normally the case with M&T.  The French, coming from the near side of the table gained VPs by destroying the enemy & by getting their civilians off the far edge of the table.  The Brits coming on from the LHs side of the table, gained VPs by destroying the enemy civilians & the trading post off-shot in the foreground.

John's Indians have advanced down the left flank while Jim's Militia on the right of the river have engaged the enemy frontally while the civilians are being moved down the right flank.  One Brit militia unit is facing the Indians & the other moving to intercept the civilians while the Brit regulars form up in the centre.

John's first Indian attack on the Brit militia was beaten off, but the second Indian unit took out the militia.  Then the combination of Indians from the flank & militia fire frontally destroyed the Brit regulars.

Renfrey's militia was then overwhelmed by the Canadian militia completing a decisive French victory.  As usual with M&T the losers claimed the scenario was biased against them while the victors considered that it was their brilliant tactics that won the day.
