The first battle we played was "Raid." I was the attacker and had to get troops next to one of the two objectives in an expedient fashion while running off the defenders.
A turn later, that group of warriors was on top of the back objective and all the French could do was watch. Game 1 - a handy win for the tribe!
I know dice rolls are what they are but I was damn impressed by the performance of my Native American rabble. They were fun to use and quite effective considering their primitive equipment. I'll almost certainly use the same group at Rapier. My mind can't handle lots of special rules and having three identical squads makes it easy on me.
