Dave and myself tried the Attack on Fort Glory scenario from the Rebels and Patriots book. Naturally Dave was the attacker using his now ubiquitous Brunswick cannon and Andy's Portuguese. The Comte D'El Monte didn't see much glory in defending a fort, nothing to do with the fact that the defenders only had 12 points versus the attackers 24 points, so the Spanish forces of King Joseph were led by Paymaster General Money McGregor, with two small units of line, two small timid units of line a skirmish unit outside the fort.
Dave deployed on three sides of the fort relying on his skirmishers to screen his light infantry whilst the gun consistently whittled down the Spanish infantry in the fort.
Things started well for the Spanish with the skirmishers rolling a double six......then failing almost every activation during the game.
However the Spanish did put up a solid resistance chipping away at the Portuguese, Dave uncharestically not failing any moral rolls. As the Spanish were slowly whittled down Paymaster McGregor kept his forces together and fighting with the exception of the absolutely useless Spanish skirmishers outside the fort.
Dave even managed to attack the fort.
Despite Andy's tactical advice Dave risked firing on Paymaster McGregor's unit..........one casualty caused.......at last Dave's tactical genius shined through.....a double one resulted in the Paymaster falling. The subsequent moral rolls led to the total collapse of the Spanish.
Oh how Dave gloated claiming the fort and the Spanish standard which was abandoned in the haste to retreat.......nit to worry there are plenty more rags available to wave about.
A fun game which allowed Dave's ability to roll double ones to really shine!
