First of, Happy New Year to all of you buggers who stalk me with that Deviant Watch thing. Finally, 2011 is out of my life and a new, better year rises up.

Apologies, but I'm gonna start this post with bad news: I'm stuck with The American Battlegrounds (again), and i need ideas. Here's the deal (I'm not spoiling anything because this really happened, and it's on history books), the 80 Lexington militias are standing in front of the 43Rd Monmouthshire and 10th Grenadier Company. both sides are shooting each other, then Brits charge. After that, the British line rejoined the column and resumed the march to Concord. I'm stuck in that part, where i do not know what to write. According to a historian i know, the British divided their forces in Concord, one battalion moved towards South Bridge, the other to North Bridge. 43rd went to NB, got their asses kicked and were chased by the Continentals almost all the way back to Boston. Now the deal is, i have no idea whatsoever on what to write besides historical data... HALP!

Let's get over the good news now, shall we? Ok so good news: I'm quite sure you buggers never visited the BGMS site (link in the deviant ID), so I'll assume you have no idea on what the Battle of Fort Bull was, nor that we are gonna make a reenactment in BattleGrounds 2, record it and make a movie out of it. Therefore, I'll explain to you what was that all about:

On March 27th, 1756, Gaspard-Joseph Chaussegros de Léry led a small french force (84 troupes de la Marine, 111 Canadian militiamen, and 110 natives, to be exact) to attack a British held fort in the Oneida county. The fort was held by a guy named William Bull (the Brits had no imagination, and the guy was all like "fuck it put my name to the fort") and the 50th Regiment of Foot. The little wooden fort was surrounded by forest, and only 100 yards radius of clear land. The French charged the fort with fixed bayonets (imagine 250 men, some natives, running like maniacs straight at the British force in a Russian Charge style), chopped down the gate with an axe and killed every single British living being in the fort, then the Natives scalped the bodies and burnt the fort to the ground. The Brits then rebuilt the fort in May, but when they saw the French coming back at them their bollocks decided to chop themselves off and run away. The Brits also buggered off, burning the fort a 2nd time.

Ok, so the good news is, We got ourselves a mapper! We're gonna finally be able to record Bull, that means FINALLY BGMS WILL RELEASE SOMETHING! :iconfuckyeaplz:

In other news, very bad idea to drink all that champagne. VERY BAD ONE. (specially cus i'm just 16... heh... bugger it.)

I also joined The Royal Recruits, the oldest clan in BattleGrounds 2. So far the clan's 7 years old and has quite interesting members... www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMdxej… WTF?

I also grew addicted to this tune: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UmtJ3… Blame the 69th Infantry Division RnL clan.

Ok lads, i wish ye all a happy 2012, i can assure you it WILL BE the best year of your life (God wound't want to make the last year of human existence shit, would he?)

Nec Aspera Terrent, Love and Tolerate, lads.

Well if you don't want to give historical data you could always give technical data such as the ability of the americans to raise militia over a vast territory forcing the british to seperate their army. Or talk about the patriotic motivation that give the americans an advantage over the British soldiers who don't necessarily fight for much or maybe talk about the kentucky rifle that gave american soldiers an advantage in accuracy on the terrain. If you need more info I'd be glad to look some up for you I do study history.

And I see you still enjoy colonial ponies eh? Check out my newest edition to my collection if you still haven't might interest you: [link]

With historical data I'm better than good. In fact, I got flooded with historical facts while making a Rev War essay. Thing is, I always get in trouble when my scripts or stories have to follow many standards. I personally prefer writing whatever I want, not giving a shit about history and/or any kind of standard (besides my own).

Regarding the Pennsylvania/Kentucky Long Rifle, it wasn't very common weapon until the Frontiersmen came to scene. Before that the Continentals were stuck with Charlevilles, Fowlers, Blunderbusses and Brown Bess muskets (short and long patterns).

Two reasons to move account: first of, I wanted to get rid of the Pony-exclusive account. Second, There was this guy on BG named Husso. Just added him tp the friend list, and he's kinda... R Lee Ermey and Hitler's offspring.
