I was lucky enough to play in the game and it was a blast.  I was the one that got to fire most of the buildings :D

Excellent looking game and report  8)

I like M&T, there were a few issues when I first played it but these have been sorted out and it looks to be a good ruleset that can be adapted to other Horse & Musket eras.

I might be wrong but when throwing tomahawks/knives/clubs etc during a charge, my understanding is that both attacker and defender get to do it, any resulting casualties are added to the melee result.

Lovely stuff, Doc!
Pure eye candy.

And this did make me chuckle:

A few indians pose for publicity shots for the 'Scalping Monthly' and 'Which Tomahawk?' photographers

 lol lol lol

I thought it was only the attackers who got this option...might be wrong though
I also thought casualties are removed before me lee...useful option for Indians to soften up redcoats ranks.

You are right, throwing tomahawks is done at the start of the movement action so only the figure actually moving throws his tomahawk.

Oh, I played in the (same or similar) one at Historicon.  And that one was fun too as I'm sure this one was.
