A Skirmish on the Frontier


The other weekend my good friends Jeff, Dave and Josh played a very nice game of Dead Man's Hand. I thought, when setting up the table that a more open table might play OK for DMH. However after a few comments from the guys the normal set up with loads of places find cover and to hide would have suited the Indian fighting style better. 


All the figures have been painted by Leroy Simpson and are now part of Jeff's collection.


Rengade Indians watch for approaching US Cavalry from the high ground


US Cavalry advance 


Indians waiting in ambush


"Wait I think I see something up there in the hills"


The move slowly forward with caution 



The Indians spring their trap



"Take cover boys here they come!"


Deadly in hand to hand the Indians tried hard to close with the Cavalry troopers


However the spencer repeater rifles of the cavalry played havoc and mowed them down.




'Nice time you dogs!'
