A quick note on a rule change for this game. Over the last 5 games defending forces have failed to successfully defend their fortifications. Rather than allowing a defending unit the option to re-roll a poor D3 score when shooting. Now units within fortifications add 1 to their score when shooting at unit adjacent to the fortifications.
For the French the plan is to defend both flanks of the fort. Grenadiers on their right flank aim to hold off any attack from the hills. While on the other flank 2 units or Regulars will hold position adding their fire to those of the fort.
The British plan is to move up their Rangers along the hills and once the French Grenadiers are engaged move their lines up veering towards the French right flank.
|As British Rangers move up through the hills French Grenadiers open fire.|
|Some Ranger units are delayed, but advance units engage the Grenadiers whose shooting is proving very accurate.|
|With the French right flank engaged the British line advances.|
|All Ranger units are engaged trying to put pressure on the Grenadiers.|
|The Fort and left flank open fire as the British line move into range.|
|Grenadier musket fire eliminates a Ranger unit.|
|The British assault on the fort begins.|
|Militia units are brought into the line to provide extra musket fire.|
|The French Grenadiers finally succumb to musket fire from Rangers and supporting Militia units. While on the other flank Commander Dieskau prudently retires to avoid being eliminated.|
|The British right flank retires as they concentrate their efforts on the left corner. Both siders were wary of accumulating any more losses and failing their army resolve.|
|A final push by the British to get a toe hold in the fort.|
|Two Brush units are lost and they fail their army resolve, a victory to the defending French.|
