I was today at the Rejects after Ray called me to act as a substitute for a game of Fire and Fury. On my way there, I met Tamsin, who was also invited. After some talks with the local police (erm), we arrived at Postie's, and there we met Jack, Postie (obiviously), Lee, Fran (who was actually cooking, by god the pasta were good, I need you to give me the recipe, simple yet effective, Fran), And Curt. Yup, a real convention, full of celebrities hehe. Once in Postie's shack, I must say I was impressed by the sheer size of the gaming table.
It was supposed to represent the battle of Salutesville (pun), in 1862. Each one of us played a corps. If I recall, I had the 12th, with some troops from Pennsylvania and Ohio. I won't talk about it much, except it was good, fun, full of swearing from Fran ( and myself sometimes). Quite a lot of head banging because of the numerous ones we all threw. Yep, that was a good game. I can't report much because iI had to leave rather early. My corps, on the far left, had to move forward, push Jeb Stuart's cavalry, and assist the center by sending some troops on the other side of the fordable river. Easier said than done.
I'll just show you some pics and then you'll see a slide. Enjoy mates. To conclude, I had a really good, even though I didn't speak that much. Sorry guys, I'm not very talkative, but then you just can't compete against Fran and Ray :) It was really nice finally meeting you all, and Postie, thanks for the game. In the end, I was given the status of honorary member, French chapter, which I accepted proudly. And Tamsin gave me my well-deserved pize for winning the draw ;) Anytime for a new game guys.

|Pom pom pom, more troops for us|

Salut a tous. Aujourd'hui j'etais invite chez les Rejects pour une mega partie guerre de secession sur Fire and Fury. Ce fut l'occasion de rencontrer des celebrites parmi les bloggueurs, et croyez-moi, je ne fus pas decu. Nous avons joue un scenario sur un affrontement hypothetique a Saluteville. J'etais du cote nordiste, sur le flanc gauche avec mon 12e corps. Comme vous pouvez le voir, il y avait de la fig et de la bonne humeur, et des jurons. Franchement, entre les 1 au de, et les deroutes, c'etait que du bon. Je laisserai mes confreres s'occuper du rapport de bataille car j'ai du partir avant la fin. une chose est sure, je reviendrai, car on sait recevoir chez les Rejects.
