Britcon 2011 - Wrap up

Well, that was Britcon 2011.

It was my first Britcon playing FoGR and had a lot of fun. I ended up middle of the pool with two nightmare match ups for the last two rounds.

My first game was against the 2nd seed of the competition. We ended up facing each other due to his name being lost in the draw and I was the last person without an opponent....

Just what I wanted, two swiss players for the last rounds. At least I didn't end up loosing 25-0 to them, I made both players work for it, ending up with an 18-7 lose. With both games, I just needed one more battle group to break their armies, pity that to get that would involve beating an elite Keil.....

so, the games were

Later Louis the 14th French 1-24
Later 30 years War German 25-0
Austrian Imperial 7-13
Later Louis the 14th French 19-6
Swiss 7-18
Swiss 7-18

Total points 66

Interesting that you lost to a Louis 14 and then beat a Louis 14... were the lists similar? Was it a case of lessons learned against that army?

My first Louis 14th was the 2nd seed for the comp. He just trashed me.

in the 2nd game, I was a bit more warey of the salvo foot and had my artillery batteries ready for his cav. Managed to rout one cav unit after two rounds of artillery firing. Four hits will take down an average unit if you roll two 1's.
