Busy gaming the second of three linked games using my Tex-Mex figures and 'Sharp Practise' . Here Col. Fannon organises the Texian militia in defence of the town. I've started to play mini campaign/ linked games were one battle leads to the events of the next and will be using this over a series of periods and rules.
David Crockett directs the fire of his skirmishers from the roof of a adobe building . The Texians did badly in the first game fleeing the field under the aggressive assaults from the Mexicans .
However after an initial successful attack on the mounted Texian cavalry which they drove from the table their cavalry is driven back by Crockett's riflemen - the CinC is wounded and then had his horse shot out from under him .
The commander of this infantry formation was killed and another officer had to dash across to try and get them motivated .
The overall situation , the Mexican attack has stalled as their officers are taken out of action and their units are becoming demoralised as they take casualties from the Texian militia . Enjoying playing 'Sharp Practise' as it's all about unit and force morale rather than casualties and drawing the cards from the activation deck is perfect for solo gaming.
