Leadshot - The Old West Miniature Game where anything can happen
'Jimmy Rogan sauntered across the bar room, an insolent smirk that looked more like a sneer twisting his lips, as the fingers of his right hand lightly trailed over the hammer of his six shooter. It was an unconscious action. Almost a muscle memory you could say. The spring of the hammer was pliable from constant use, but not to the point where it failed to do its role. Rogan reached the bar and leant forward to spit into the brass spittoon, splattering spittle against the belled edge and down the side, he rose and eyed himself in the mirror. His sneer turned into a lopsided gap toothed grin, when he noticed the one whore in the bar looking fearfully at his back.
He turned to face her, figuring to himself that there might be something to do in this town after all. Thinking up his best one liner that he was sure would get him a free lay, he failed to notice the Derringer pistol, almost concealed in the steady grip of the bar girl.
“You killed my Pa,” said Ruby and fired the pistol. The bullet travelled faster than the gunslinger could draw. Much faster. It struck him just above the left eye, punching a neat hole through the thin bone and into his brain. His right hand flopped at his holster for just a second, before he fell across the same spittoon he had just used, the crooked smile on his face making him look bewildered as he lay on the floor.’
Grand Battles Napoleon
The Battle of Vimeiro, 21 August, 1808
The French Army of Portugal, commanded by Junot, swept down upon Arthur Wellesly's British-Allied army near the town of Vimeiro on the 21st of August, 1808. Junot attacked the British in two disjointed assaults upon the British held ridge line, the first against the British left flank and then against the British right flank. Both assaults were repulsed with the French suffering horrific casualties.
Come and join our game at Briscon 2018, and see if you can do better than Junot and drive those redcoats from the field.
