As the weekend proceed, my mounting fatigue level makes writing battle reports difficult. We tried the siege for the third time on Saturday morning, and started from a similar position to that used in the second game, except that Ross calculated that it would be better if the attackers had laid the second parallel out a little farther forward than they had in the first game (and which we used as the basis of the second game). After the usual tense sapping and constructing of batteries, the attackers eventually massed troops just beyond the crest of the covered way and launced an assault to clear the way to build their breaching batteries. The photo here shows the Northern Alliance troops, principally MacDuff's Fusiliers, leading the assault.
I post a little about my ongoing projects, recent games, how I got to where I am, and where I'm going, as time away from the workbench, and a somewhat busy life, permits. I'll try to keep cooking and ballroom dance down to a minimum, but they do seem to take up a lot of time.
This is my really short, no explanation included, list of projects: 54mm Medieval Mayhem (skirmish), 54mm Buck Rogers, 40mm French and Indian War, 40mm NQSYW, 40mm French Revolution/Scarlet Pimpernel, 40mm Renaissance, 25mm Dark Ages (Saxons and Vikings), 25mm Darkest Africa, 25mm Fantasy, 1/72 scale Bronze Age, 1/72 scale 2nd Punic War, 1/72 scale fantasy (travel skirmish), 6mm Ancients (travel DBA), 6mm Fantasy (travel HotT), 6mm Spanish Civil War.
