|Our game for Day 1: Cog Wars, Normans vs. Turks in the Med.|
|Mexican Fusileros assault a Texian blockhouse.|
So, I haven't posted anything since before Historicon...guess I need to get back on the stick. We went early Thursday morning to kill some time before our first game. My eldest son painted while I played a Texas Revolution skirmish with my younger son.
|The Mexicans overrun the Texian skirmishers.|
|Light casualties are taken and the skirmishers are swept aside.|
|Mexicans breach the blockhouse door and fight their way to the second floor.|
|Last man standing. The blockhouse is taken.|
The best part of playing with your seven-year-old? Hearing, "Dad, can we play again?" We did, and then headed over to Cog Wars.
|The setup: Fifteen cogs on a table, Normans vs. Turks.|
|The infidel approacheth. (Both sides hurled insults against their respective faiths...|
it was an ugly fight so typical of the medieval Med.)
|My large Norman Cog and my son's smaller-but faster cog grapple and|
board the infidel.
|The fight borke down into three separate engagements...and the Turks won.|
