"NOT MEN BUT DEMONS!" Camerone AAR
« on: May 01, 2018, 06:44:16 AM »
155 years ago the Third Company of France's First Foreign Regiment proved their fidelity to mission, fighting against overwhelming odds of roughly four-hundred to one, until nealry all were dead or wounded.

I put an AAR on my long-dormant Camerone Day blog from a recent Camerone game run by my friend Nick Stern at his local club in Northern California.

Since it's still April 30th CAMERONE DAY here in Los Angeles, this seems a good time to post a link here...

If you're interested in an older AAR from the 150th Anniversary game Nick and I organized on April 30th 2013 (back when I was still a lurker around these parts and not yet an active thread-starter) with waaaayyyy too many photos, here's another link, and thanks in advance for your time if you choose to click on either or both of them:

From the 150th Anniversary game in 2013...

Any combination of Mad Guru and Nick Stern is bound to lead to some beautiful gaming.  And I'd say that applies here.

Thanks very much for all the comments everyone!

@Smokey: I'm honored to hear you copied my Camerone buildings, my friend!  I can't take credit for another man's work and though I did the reseatch and designed the layout it was made for me by Chris Riordan AKA: Chris The Model Maker.  BTW, recently saw on an old Camerone-related post that not so long ago you sir actually VISITED CAMERONE, which is AMAZING!  I almost got there a couple times but it never worked out.  Hopefully someday I'll make it and be able to follow in your Hurricane footsteps.

Yes, I knew that, as your site is my reference go to for Camerone.  :)

My Mom actually saw a re-enactment of the battle "and Puebla) when she was a kid (she's from Mexico)
