Many thanks to Tom for hosting Camerone Day again this year! It was fantastic fun, even though I played the unlucky Lt. Vilain and make a few poor decisions which allowed the Mexicans into the compound...
A great set of rules that gave each side purposeful decisions to make in a desperate last stand.
Here are a few iPhone pictures: (click to enlarge)

|My Section of the wall. The hacienda has Mexican snipers in it that would periodically take pot shots at us|
|The third Mexican assault is about the break in, let us seal the breach with our Legion dead!|
|And they finally do break in. My last 3 wounded troops sell their lives dearly in the lower left corner|

Thank for hosting the game Tom! Ok, back on the WW1 wagon, the last bit of painting took longer than expected, of course. Next entry will be my reading list for WW1, until then, happy gaming!
