After taking the village of Orchard Farm, British forces moved toward a vital bridge crossing into the toxic marshlands that exist beneath many of the sky cities. The area below Orleans and its out lying villages must be captured and cleared in preparation for the primary siege. French forces rallied on the opposite side of the river and bridge from the British advance to deny them the least dangerous crossing to Orleans.
Professor Vesuvias, in his monsterous creation "Songbird Mk1." he is the inventor of all French air machines.
2nd Royal Guardian Corps.-2 support teams, and 2 rifle teams
Led by Col. Bosch- rival of captian Teage.
1st Royal Air- 2 flights of "Straw" type biplanes.
1st Great Army Repatriated Regiment
- Captain Matthews commanding
-Captain Teague commanding
45th Air Cav, Detachment -1
Primary Objective of French is to deny the British any troops crossing the river, the British are trying to get as many troops across as possible in 5 turns.
We decided that the deployment would be diagonal across the length of the table, with the bridge at the center.
The first turn sees both armies trading a few long range shots to no ill effect for either side, and a lot of movement into the center.
Teague is given. Rival- Matthews, which we decided would mean that no 3rd foot regiment would assist any Great Army unit in matters of shooting, or melee as long as the were within 10'' of Captian Teague. Also, if Matthews is ever to "kill" as in remove from campaign Col. Bosch, Teague will challenge him to a duel to the death after aforementioned game.
In his anger at seeing this Teague pushes all his men recklessly forward into the guns of the french forces.
Final Result: Costly British Victory.
Total Casualties on Both Sides:
1 Straw downed, another crippled
