Some photographs of a raid on the French coast during the SYW.
This was a raid on the French coast during the Seven Years War. I have tried this scenario a few times and it works well. I actually had an article published in Battlefields magazine years ago about this scenario.
Rules are home made and all figures are Old Glory 15mm SYW range except the sailors and the rowing boats which are AB Figures and the pirates which are Peter Pig.
