I took my my 15mm Muskets & Tomahawks participation game to Exeter for the Legionary 2013 show.
The scenario is an Indian raid on a British village.
The British have 2 Irregular Officers, 2 units of 6 Militia and 2 units of 6 Rangers and their objective is Defence. This means that no enemy can be within 4" of the two buildings in the centre of the table at the end of the game.
The Indians have 2 Sachem, and 4 units of 6 Indians with their objective being Raid. This requires the two buildings in the centre of the table to be burnt down.
We played two games during the day - the honours going to the Indians with one being a total victory and the other a marginal one. It keeps the carpenters in New Plymouth fully employed.
The photos are mix of the two games
The Militia fall back to New Plymouth
The fort at New Plymouth - the fort and it's garrison take no part in the game

Highlights of the day - I met Nick from the M&T Forum who pointed out some rules I had missed. Three people bought the M&T rules as a result of playing and hopefully a few people will think about using 15mm figures for not only M&T but also for skirmishing in general.
Amusing story of the day - an old chap walked up to the table and we started talking. I asked him if he played this period. He replied that he had AWI armies. I then enquired as to what rules he used. He looked at me and said "Well ours of course". I was about to ask he meant when someone approached him and said "Excuse me Mr Barker, can I talk to you about DBA".
Icing on the cake - winning the Phil Barker Best Participation Game award
The buildings are from 4Ground. The figures are from Peter Pig's AWI range with the exception of the British Regulars in the fort who are by Essex. The cloth is by Gaveno Cavailia. The flashing LED light in the burning Russian cabin is from The Glow Company
