|My Forces. 3 units of infantry and one of artillery.|
Graham had 3 units of infantry and one of cavalry
Bob also had 3 units of infantry and one of cavalry (with lances)
|Tim's Troops started in the village and were the only|
Mhardist troops on the table at the start of the game.
Peters troops arrive at the very first turn.
Mats arrive on the second.
|All the british try to advance as swiftly as they are able |
but the cannon only moves 4 inches a turn so
I lag behind somewhat.
|The cavalry push me from the hill|
but not with sufficient force to break me
Worse for peter in hi follow up assault
my infantry actually win and push him back.
|Peter (opposite me) moves his troops up using as much blocking terrain as possible.|
Matt also moves up but has far less blocking terrain.
|Able to hide his cavalry in a valley out of shot |
Peter unleashes a charge up hill against my
central foot unit.
|As soon as I could fire all 3 units opened up on the cavalry. |
Not killing them outright but really hurting them and bringing them to about 1/4
of starting strength,
|However this cavalry screen was enough to let Peter move his Fuzzy Wuzzies|
up and into contact.
There is only so much a unit can do.
Without breking they are pushed back down the hill for a second time.
