In December, Mark and I were able to meet up again and play a game after a long break, which was due to many factors. Mark ran the Battle of Warburg with Volley & Bayonet (2nd edition). It was one of the best games of Volley & Bayonet that Mark and I have played over the years. I managed to squeak out a minor victory, but it was a very well played game by both sides. I think the game worked well as with the large movement rates in Volley & Bayonet, you are never sure where the other side will attack. The lack of command and control rules did not really impact the game. It was a very enjoyable game. I think I liked the lack of waiting for cards that seems to be the take-away from the many Piquet Field of Battle games I have recently been playing.
Here is the scenario we played (which was designed by Mark): Warburg
Mark provided the figures, the terrain, lunch and the photos (I forgot to bring my camera).
Here are some photos of the game:
I have not idea why my finger is pointing at that stand.
