My brave lads prepare to repel the hairy hordes in the first (colonial period) game.
A few of the aforementioned hairy hordes. There were lots of 'em. Thousands.
Inspired leadership, pluck and firepower won the day. Though not necessarily in that order...
The defenders of the outpost come under pressure. An infantry stand could take four 'hits' before being eliminated.
Bob's flanking move caused me a few worries but his forces were sufficiently weakened by my defenders that the final assault never took place.
