Meanwhile, in the highlands of northern Britain, King George's men go about the thankless task of collecting taxes. Here we see the sassenach escorting the tax wagon through the Scottish market town of Crag Bannock. Concealed nearby, Red Dougie MacArdo and friends await their opportunity to collect a tax refund on the sum so recently extracted.
This was prepared as a backup game to be played by the King of San Maurice and the Elector if time allowed after campaign moves were made in their most recent war. Since time ran out before we could get to this we'll never know if the lads among heather got their coin back or not. Most of the houses in the town (and all of the really nice ones) were made by King Louis Phillipe. He's the artistic one, I'm the good looking one.
