28mm AWI Battle Report in Pictures
The residents of Chifley House
The Eastbrook Farm House
Clayton’s Farm (Note the home made lettuce patch!)
On comes the Elite Brigade of Grenadiers and Light Infantry
Surprise! Already within range of the American riflemen
Militia occupying a large field.
Some seasoned Continentals in the Eastbrook Farm.
Off go the supply wagons and escorts…
Jaegers skirmishing with the solid looking Rebel line.
Ooh, nice… the British main attack is launched on turn 3.
The Elite brigade starts deploying to counter the annoying resistance.
Guards, we’re guarrrrds! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0KYh4J2trE
Getting stuck into the militia.
British 1st brigade pushing ahead.
A cheeky bunch of Continental Dragoons sally out and run over some grenadiers. While the Jaegers stay clear.
British have cleared out the Eastbrook Farm house in one go. Cows don’t seem to care.
And the large field goes next. Was too much for this cow.
The British, now cluing onto the American aims, launch an attack on the ford. The first supply wagon is on the top left of the picture.
The result of the British attack. Didn’t go so well.
Crappy E class troops are taking hits, but won’t run.
While their left flank willingly gives ground to 1/3 of the British troops
The wooded ridge is almost cleared.
And the British kept-a-coming…
The Americans reach their ‘line in the sand’ positions. But have bought enough time for the 2nd cart to escape.
The rather exposed and contracted American position awaits more attacks in the South.
In goes a light battalion attack over another set of obstacles.
In goes the Lt Dragoons for a successful 11th hour attack.
All too little too late though as the Americans claim victory by acheiving their objectives.
