Prepping for Bunker Hill

Long-time readers of the blog may remember that back in 2011-12 I built a British army to fight Bunker Hill.  Although I have this great 28mm AWI collection sitting around, I have only played two games with it!  Tomorrow I will finally get Bunker Hill on the table.  My group will be using the excellent "British Grenadier!" rules.

Pigot's (left) and Howe's (right) brigades move into attack position.

Prescott's brigade mans the Breed's Hill defenses while Stark's brigade lines the rail fence.

Howe's converged light infantry companies will lead the way.

Stark's boys look like they mean business!

This is a pretty small scenario.  The Americans start with eight maneuver elements, with the chance of two more coming on board later.  The British start with seven, with two more coming on halfway through the game.  I think we may get in more than one game!


  1. Looks great! We have fought this battle in 28mm and 15mm. Bunker Hill is an interesting battle with challenges for both. I am interested in seeing how BG plays.

    Have we really only had these troops on the table twice?

    1. I can hardly believe it myself. Hopefully we can give this collection a serious workout over the next few years.

  2. Excellent stuff! My group is doing Bunker Hill at an upcoming convention.

  3. Nice looking game Scott. Played the BG scenario several times(hence my blog title) to include running it at a convention and it's great fun and a challenge for both sides.
