|French retirement move after their last defeat in game 4|
|British move to attack across the river in an attempt to isolate the French fort.|
|Terrain laid out ready for a game|
The river could be crossed at the road and two other fordable places known to both forces.
|British forces arrive on the battlefield|
|French blockhouse - the forces placed behind are there to remind me they are within the structure.|
|British move across the river on their right flank behind the woods. This protected them from French artillery fire.|
|The crossing is complete and the British attack is in full swing.|
|Casualties are starting to mount on both sides.|
|Somewhat quieter on the other flank|
|Both sides commit all their reserves to the fight as casualties increase.|
|In the end French defenders manage to hold off the British assault|
This game was played four times as I made changes to rules. Rather than playing out a new game to test out modifications, I just kept the terrain in place and started over again. I like quicker games (about an hours duration) so playing through a number of games over a couple of days is quite feasible. The results of the four games was split two wins on either side. I went with the first game result which was a French win.
