The scenario saw two battalions from my Anglophobian Naval Brigade (accompanied by one light and one heavy gun) defending their beachhead in Forbodia. This came as quite a surprise to the Forbodians as the country is completely landlocked....
The local troops consisted of two battalions of Jagers, two light mountain guns and a regiment of Gendarmes. A second regiment was on it's way and might appear during the game.
Above we can see the naughty Naval chaps moving into position around a Forbodian farm. The farmer - a certain Mr Hook - had wisely fled before the battle.
|Forbodian Gendarmes arrive.|
|The Anglophobians deploy|
|A daunting prospect for the Forbodians. The roads are parcel tape, the buildings boxes for die-cast cars turned inside out.|
|The Gendarmes made an imposing sight!|
|But they weren't just for show - soon they were stuck into the enemy.|
|The sailors' rifle fire emptied a few saddles...|
|...and the first round of melee further depleted the Gendarmes' numbers!|
Is cavalry no longer the arm of decision?
How did Farmer Hook get planning permission for these ghastly buildings?
Stay tuned for the next thrilling episode......
