Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a War of Spanish Succession battle using the Black Powder rules. The non-historical scenario was an attack by Allied troops on a French position.
With Allied casualties about double those of the French, we called the game at this point.
Saturday the local HMGS-South group played a War of Spanish Succession battle at the Dogs of War shop using the Black Powder rules. The scenario was (very) loosely based on the Battle of Oudenarde, 11 July 1708.
The battle was played until one side had 7 units shaken or destroyed. The French reached 7 while the Allies were at 6. The French battalion defending Eyne held out for the entire battle.
Ultimately both Mosquitoes bomb targets and one is lost shortly afterword. Two fighters are lost on each side as well.
The Blenheims were to cross the table and bomb invasion barges prior to the planned 1940 invasion of Britain.
Ultimately, all three Blenheims were destroyed. One Me109 and one Hurricane were destroyed and several other planes were damaged.
The bombers were to cross the table and bomb some military installations in France prior to D Day. None made it. Two 110s were lost. Two 109s and a 190 were damaged.
In this Black Powder scenario the advance guard of the Allied army had just arrived at a village crossroads. While still in march column, the advance guard is surprised by the appearance of a French blocking force tasked with the delay of the Allies. The French objective is to take the crossroads and hold it as long as possible.
