This week’s game at the SESWC was something different. Pirates!
The game was a follow up to last week at the club which I missed being on holiday in Spain Colin Jack provided the models and we used Angus Konstam’s sea mat on the table. The rules were the Legends of the High Seas by Tim Kulinski and Rick Priestley.

On the other half of the table Colin Jack and Olivier Lepreux played out the steal a ship scenario. A lack of muskets forced Colin’s cutting out party to storm the ship along a narrow wharf defended by Olivier with muskets, blunderbuss and pistols. It proved a disaster for Colin who lost in a very one sided struggle….
I am not convinced that the rules which are derived from the Legends of the West gun fighting rules really work for Pirates who are largely hand to hand fighters. But I enjoyed the game.
Next week - 20mm SCW - still working on the scenario...
