AWI battle at my place
« on: June 22, 2009, 07:48:07 am »
Hello all,

Saturday the 20th, we played a medium sized AWI battle at my place.

The Rebels & French advanced, but their artillery support failed to many times whereby the British cavalry in combination with artillery caused many casualties at that side….

After a few hours the british took the field!

Stats:

British / Austrian (fictive!) alliance:
71st Regiment foot   30 men infantry
64th Regiment foot   30 men infantry
16th light dragoons   16 men cavalry
3rd artillery           9 men, 3 guns

14th Austrian foot      33 men infantry
6th Austrian foot      12 men infantry

Total:            130 men


Against colonial rebels with the help of the French:

1st Maryland regiment   22 men infantry
Culpepper Minutemen   30 men militia
Bedford Minute men   25 men militia
Virginia light dragoons     9 men cavalry
Colonial artillery      14 men / 4 guns
Royal d’Artillery        5 men / 2 guns

Régiment de Touraine   34 men infantry

Total:            139 men


Playtime:  6 Hours
Players:  2
Battlefield: 5 sqm ( 2 x 2,5m ) = 6 square yards
Losses:    45 dead,  15 wounded Rebels + French
20 dead, 12 wounded British + Austrian
Rules: “Three Inch Glory” (written by myself)

Here are some pictures:

The Generals had a short "Parlez" and then head off back to their camps.....
