Members of SKG3 attended Honiton Wargames Club in early October. Our game comprised a British-Emigre force (155 figs) holding a town against a larger French Revolutionary army (255 figs).
Chris commanded the British and surprised us all with a general advance on the French, under Luke, before they had time to fully deploy. This plan had some initial success in sweeping back the advanced French light infantry and cavalry, the York Hussars proving particularly effective in this. But problems slowly mounted as enemy numbers increased and many British units found themselves outstretched and often unsupported.
The game lasted three hours, the simple rules receiving praise from players. A French victory was granted since the town's garrison was too reduced to keep the French at bay. Special thanks to Andy for taking some fair photos.
