Unfortunately, my trusty digital camera, which I've had for over 10 years, chose this night to die. So most of the pictures were grainy and over-exposed, and tinged red. I was however able to salvage some of these by using a sepia tone and exposure fixes on them. In they end I think they give a good vintage look.

Meanwhile the British Guards and their officer, Captain Harland-White, and an Impervious Suit, made their way into town. Captain H-W, climbed through a back window of a near-by blacksmith's on to a workbench directly behind a Gatling gun and it's crew. the Captain quickly engaged the crew in hand to hand combat, but managed to fall off the workbench. He quickly got up again, and was able to dispatch the crew in good order. Meanwhile his unit moved towards the back of the Assayer's office but found the building to be occupied by a unit of mercenary gunslingers.

The game was called as an Allied victory. It was a close run thing throughout, and all the players said they had a great time. I'm really looking forward to running this now at Nashcon, and again at Historicon.
