|The Rangers just fail to make contact with the Padoquoi village in Turn 1.|
|Meanwhile the British Regulars, their left screened by their Light Company,|
advance on the French left.
|The inhabitants of Petit-St Mellon prepare to defend their homes. In the |
background the French artillery makes slow progress towards the left flank.
|"Not quite time for the last rites, Father." ...not just yet anyway!|
|French regulars have been wrong-footed by the British attack on the weaker|
French left flank.
|The French left is held by two elements of Coureur Du Bois, who will very|
soon be driven in by the British infantry advancing on their position.
|The British advance relentlessly supported by their native allies. We treated|
each base as a separate unit in BP terms for firing and fighting and it seemed
to work just fine throughout the game.
|The French infantry attempt to take the British in the flank, while the folk of|
Petit-St Mellon hold off the Light Company. It was looking very good for the
French cause at that point!
|The remaining Paddoquoi have been persuaded to come over to the French |
side and set off with a whoop to take a few scalps! Or so I hoped!!
|Four Morale Save failures later, the French are being driven back by Turn 8.|
|In Turn 9 a further two Morale Save failures sees the French force Broken. |
The French commander orders a retreat and Petit-St Mellon will burn!
