Jonathan is sick so there is NO NEW EPISODE right now. To make up for it we’re sharing this episode from the vault. The classic episode comes to you from the dark ages where the show had a different name. Since this is a CLASSIC episode some of the links, content, giveaways, contests etc may be out of date or ended.
Don’t worry! Next time we’ll be back with a NEW episode of Wargaming Recon.
Host Jonathan J. Reinhart releases a short show. The episode begins, unusually, with Dispatches from HQ.
The bulk of this episode is devoted to the Battle of Abington. This was a custom scenario created by Adrian Benson for Cort, Jonathan, and he to play with Warlord Games’ Black Powder rules. The trio met at Battleground Games & Hobbies in Abington to play using the models they have finished painting.
Jonathan fielded one American militia regiment and one Continental artillery battery. Adrian teamed up with Cort. Cort brought two British infantry regiments and Adrian used one small Hessian musketeer regiment. The battle is discussed, mis-steps announced, and rules mentioned. You can read battle reports at Black Powder AWI demo game (from the Hessian point of view) and The Battle of Abington (American point of view). Further discussion of the game can be found on this blog or by joining the Black Powder Wargamers of New England Yahoogroup.
The show concludes with a mention that The Whiz, Rte 9 East in Westborough, is moving! They will move 2 miles closer to 495. See The Whiz is Moving for full details. They will be at their new location as of September 1st. Until then they are offering 15-50% off everything in store. Jonathan used this opportunity to stock up on TONS of Dystopian Wars stuff including the rulebook, game cards, Prussian Empire battle box, Prussian Empire bombers, and the Prussian Pflicht Scoutship blister.
