Abundance Farm is occupied by the Paddoquoi war party in Turn 2.
The Anglo-Canadian forces advance on all fronts: the Regular Infantry on the
farm, the Militia and Fencibles on the right flank, supported by the Light
Dragoons and an RA 6lb gun.
American Light Dragoons are Shaken by fire and nervously await their
supporting Infantry from Scott's Brigade.
The Paddoquoi are joined by the 4th Foot and their combined firepower is too
much for the US Sharp Shooters who fall back Disordered.
The American Light Dragoons are routed and the Infantry forced into square
by the British cavalry. The 2nd US Artillery is left exposed!
The American left flank collapses and the Anglo-Canadians prepare to go on
the attack. Columns of Militia and Fencibles at screened by the Glengarry
"Follow Me!" American infantry charge forward but are met with withering
fire from the 4th Foot and the Paddoquoi, while the 10th Royal Veterans are
hurrying to their support.
An overview of the battlefield: the Anglo-Canadians hold the farm while on
the nearby high ground the Glengarry Light Infantry skirmish with elements
of Scott's brigade.
The 10th Royal Veterans advance to take the battle to the retiring Americans.
The American left has collapsed and though the 1th Royal Veterans' attack
has been repulsed, the Anglo-Canadian's grip on Abundance Farm and all its
wealth of supplies is like iron!
The American's concede defeat! Their Regulars fared badly against the Militia
and Fencibles while their own Militia never made it into the fight!
Next up in GHQ should be a WWII game with Jon, using Rapid Fire!2, on the first Wednesday of October. In the meantime for me its back to painting the 43rd Foot for my AWI collection. Foundry figures of course. Eight finished so far, leaving 13 to do, plus 4 Light Company figures if I get that far this month!
