taking fire from the hillsThe Mexicans have hidden setup. They pop up anywhere on the table when they activate as long as its outside 12" from the enemy. I thought about appearing directly on the road, but was afraid of getting squeezed between two enemy. So we started deploying in the hills and hacienda.
The French were much smarter. They didn't stop to fight much but just kept moving down the road. They left a string of dead and wounded in their wake. I may have to add a rule about not leaving wounded and pinned behind.
The path of destructionIt was, as all FfoL games bloody. One Mexican force looked like they were getting creamed. The Rebs couldn't seem to miss, while the Mexicans could only force pins. But, later in the game those pinned guys kept rolling "1s" and bugged out. In the end, that particular fight ended being about even.
Despite picking of anyone who took the reins of wagon, the French made their delivery. It was fun and a 6 player game was over in 1 1/2 hours!
