These are a few images from the great little demo game Matt Williamson put on for MOAB. The battle played was the Battle for Fort Ticonderoga. Which was fought on the 8 July 1758 between the English, under the command of General Abercrombie, and French, under the command of General Montcalm. The French, who only had an army of 3000 defeated 12000 British troops and causing some 1600 killed and wounded. The result of the battle caused General Abercombie to be removed and replaced by General Amherst. This demo game was played on the Sunday, with two games having been played during the day. However the battle did not follow history as on both occasions the British broke the French lines with out to much difficulty. Figures were painted by Matt, Scott Robertson and Leroy Simpson and are from the 1st Corps, Foundry, Eureka and Front Rank Miniature ranges.
