Anyway, Game 1 saw the Americans holding a river crossing defended by a redoubt and some entrenchments against a British attack. The British objective was to capture the crossing and destroy as many Americans as possible. The Americans had to hold and drive off the British.
Forces were as follows.
British: CinC Command 8
1st Brigade: Command 8
Queen's Rangers infantry ( in close order supported a small unit of skirmishers)
Queen's Rangers Hussars
2nd Brigade: Command 9
2 battalions Grenadiers (large units)
2 battalions Light Infantry (large units)
16th Light Dragoons (including a dismounted troop)
3rd brigade:Command 7
4 battalions Hessian infantry including 1 of Fusiliers
4th brigade: Command 8
2 battalions Hessian Grenadiers
1 battalion Hessian infantry
Artillery reserve: Command 8
2 batteries (6pdr and Howitzer)
For Game 2 I replaced the Hessian line infantry regiment in the Hessian Grenadier brigade with a third Grenadier battalion (Hinchliffe figures) which I had just finished basing. I also swapped the Hessian Fusiliers in the other brigade for another newly-based Hinchliffe battalion.
American: Command 7
Continental Light Dragoons
Militia mounted rifles
1st brigade: Command 8
3 battalions Virginia Militia
2nd brigade: Command 8
3 battalions Continentals
3rd Brigade: Command 9
4 battalions Continentals
Redoubt: Command 8
Pictures and a brief commentary for game 1 on Monday with John, who was the British commander, Sir Henry Clinton.
The amendments worked really well.
