Woot, a battle report! This time with Legos!
It's the Second War of Windscourt and the Lord of Windscourt is leading an allied relief force towards the remote town of Né-Elvim whose fort is besieged by the united Beaucourtian and Dorroseani armies.
Rules are standard Inter Arma with simplified firing (30 max, 15 effective / 40 for cannon), movement (cavalry (limbers) 20/30, infantry 10) and casualty (maximum 3 lost per unit per turn) regulations.
The relief force begins deploying from march column.
The enemy vanguard takes notice: heavy cavalry behind a wheat field.
Three Dorroseani line regiments launch an attack on the fort.
The artillery starts battering the two Chasseur regiments in town.
The allied Beaucourtian (blue and yellow clansmen) infantry regiments attack on the western ledge and take heavy casualties.
The cavalry attempts to find suitable deployment on the southern plain.
The lines of Windscourt infantry are marching up against the reinforced Dorroseani line.
The Mounted Chasseurs aid the infantry and the Dorin line is wavering.
The cavalry attack is very confusing on both sides and most units are trying to rally after the first clash.
The allied infantry breaches the wall but meets heavy resistance as the first regiment of the relief force arrives through the main gate.
The allied (Blue) cavalry breaks, some yield, the Dirongarten provincials and the Green heavy cavalry are in pursuit.
Intense combat with a lot of losses on both sides in town.
The first Dorin regulars are up the walls but are facing all the defenders and a heavy gun.
The allied infantry is pushed back down but not without Windscourtian losses.
The Dorroseani foot is butchered while the battle outside virtually ends, hearing this they surrender after a fair fight.
The rest of the Dorrosean cavalry (Presidential Guard in the centre) manage to wheel about and sound the retreat in good order.
The battlefield looks gory and the casualties are high, but the fort is safe now.
