My wife has 2 weeks off, starting the day after Christmas. I wanted to get one more game in before her vacation and decided to use the cavalry and indian figures. What's more, I had ordered several sets of Command and Colors: Napoleonics dice. They came the day I was setting up the game so decided to use my new dice.
The scenario is thus; a troop of cavalry went searching for some renegade indians. Alas, they failed to find them and were returning to the fort. The troop closed on a narrow pass which, once cleared would bring them a short ride home. As they approached the pass, the renegades they had been searching for came charging out of the pass at them. There was only one thing to do. The captain ordered the troop to form line and attack.
|The cavalry in column; the indians start their charge.|
|Some of the nicely painted cavalry.|
|A close up of the nicely painted indians.|
|The cavalry started to fall into line.|
|The indians close in rapidly.|
|The indians manage to dismount several of the cavalry and disorder the cavalry's charge.|
|The cavalry counter attack; they throw the indians back but do not break them.|
|The cavalry in their counter attack start separating; the indians turn and slam into the scattered troopers. they suffer heavy losses|
|The indians concentrate on dismounting the cavalry. The dismounted cavalry is easily scattered.|
|The captain managed to rally some men and took a defensive position on the hill; the last mounted soldier tries to join them. Outnumbered 3 to1, the odds are against the soldiers surviving the day.|
|The last thing the cavalrymen on the hill see.|
