This is the end...

With a company of US Regulars in my center works, I sent in my band of Indians after Gene's Indians in the copse of tree on my far right.  Too bad.  My Indians were sent packing... :(

But my Canadian Militia and my gun had moved up far enough to get in the action, and began firing deadly volleys in to the US troops on the ridge.  Our Dragoons and Rifles mixed it up on my left, with my units getting the short end of that stick.  At this point, it wasn't looking good for my Crown forces.

BUT, my right flank Regulars chased Genes' Indians away, and the firing of my Militia and gun sent the US Regulars in the center running away.  Things stabilized on the ridge, with I hold on to my right, while the American held my left.

Then, Gene's Dragoons skirted around a copse of trees in my left rear.  Fortunately, they got lost, which gave me time to move my Mounted Colonel over to see what that was about.  Gene's Dragoons sorted themselves out just in time for my Colonel (and his small entourage) to gloriously charge into them.  My Colonel, while he lost the fight and had to retreat a bit, held that flank!  Huzzah!

And then night fell.  We had reached the end of the battle.  My British held the south end of the ridge, while Gene's Americans the north.  It was a bloody draw!

Once again, Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles had worked just fine for this fight, and fun was had by all.  It was a close-run affair for both sides, and we fought to that bloody draw.  Huzzahs all around!

Ask, and ye shall receive... :)

First off, we decided that each figure represented 40-50 men, and all troops were d10...

British Force

Mounted Colonel (Leader, Encouraging)
Dismounted Major (Leader, Encouraging)
2 10-figure units of British Regulars
1 10-figure unit of Canadian Incorporated Militia
2 5-figures units of British Rifles (Ranger, Sniper)
1 6-figure unit of Indians (Ranger, Good with the Tomahawk (but only in cover))
1 light gun
1 4-figure unit of Light Dragoons

US Force

Mounted Colonel (Leader, Encouraging)
Dismounted Major (Leader, Encouraging)
2 10-figure units of US Regulars
1 10-figure unit of US Kentucky Militia
2 5-figures units of US Rifles (Ranger, Sniper)
1 6-figure unit of Indians (Ranger, Good with the Tomahawk (but only in cover))
1 light gun
1 4-figure unit of Light Dragoons

I think that does it...
