...and that's just early in the morning here in GHQ. It's hot as Hades here these last few days and with a game scheduled with Phil today what more natural choice could there be than a return to the subcontinent? In fact a first battle in Pendawar is the game I chose, mainly to get all the troops out and see what, if anything, might need adding over the winter lockdown! (See, I'm a true optimist when it comes to the common sense of my fellow human beings!) Below are pictures from the day to give a feel for the look of the game. We were more concerned with trialing various characteristics than who won - I should say now Phil won in Turn 8 of the scheduled 13.

The heat, the dust, the flies...
I'll say more about the modifications and special rules we employed in fighting this battle using Black Powder 2 rules in a future blog post, as we intend to try a second game in two weeks in the light of experience gained today. By then I hope to have added two cavalry commanders to the forces and to have completed the Voluntaires de Bykli for Typoo's army.
