Lost in a Halfling wilderness of pain, All the Conies are insane...

From left to right; Froggner, Giggers, Col. Kilpaw, 1st of the Ninth standard.
As part of this year's Orcs in the Webbe Advent Calendar, and with great apologies to Joseph Conrad, John Milius and Francis Ford Coppola, I created a scenario for Flintloque based on a scene from "Apocalypse Now". The Battle of B'Water finds our hero Giggers en route to the heart of darkness to cashier the renegade Colonel Blyng,


 The first obstacle in the way is the subject of this scenario. Access to the Bomoo river is blocked by a force of hafling slavers.
 Giggers must enlist the aid of the Hare Cav, the mobile strike force of the Burrovian Konga's Force Lipan, in order to get past this hurdle.
Into the cannon's mouth.
 Rather than play this out as a Flintloque scenario, I've decided to have a go at a Slaughterloo version instead.
 Here three units of Burrovian cavalry will face off against two units of halflings and one battery of slave Othari guns.
 Set up the table today and took some photos.


The battery.

The halfling line.

Halfling deployment. The white building with the courtyard is the Green Dragon Inn.

The Burrovians must force their way into the Inn in order to claim victory,

  2. Hello Gavin,

    Had a bit of scare when the gun opened fire. Forgot that horse took two hits to kill and by the time it fired it's second shot, it had inflicted three wounds. Removing three figures, took the officer test and Major Harecule Pothole was shot off his donkey.

    Fixed it now though. Three wounds being only 1 figure removed and Harecule spared. Attack is on track if disorganized by Kilpaw having received two Command Indecision cards in two turns.

  3. Fabulous! Why not gaming this with Colonial Adventures or Muskets & Mohawks?
    Maybe "Waiting for the summer rain"?
    ;-)

    1. Glad you like it

      Muskets and Mohawks would work beautifully here but I had an idea for solo play of Slaughterloo that I had been meaning to play around with.

      Always fun to play different games now and then.
