Siege of Savannah.

Our last Friday night game was a 15mm AWI game based on the siege of Savannah.

 The French were in the centre and on the right flank.
 The French launch their attacks at the British held town while a ship starts blasting away in support.
 Brit's and loyalists defend the earthworks around the town of Savannah.
 The Americans waited in the distance for the French to do the hard work before they joined in.

Savannah river and town.


Navel guns pounding the town.

Another French attack builds in the fields.

 The French attacked the earthworks several times. A couple of times they did manage to get troops over the earthworks but each time the British countered and through them back.
 After numerous charges the French army was reduced to ruins. The British too were severely weakened and the Americans decided it was time to finish this thing.

They charged into the British right flank and forced their way over the earthworks and into the town. Slowly the British and their loyalist friends were forced further and further into Savannah. With the French no longer a threat the British were able to beef up their right and force out the Americans to keep Savannah in British hands.

Figures, buildings and terrain from Adrian's collections.

Rules were Volley and Bayonet.

  2. Great pictures, Rodger. I thought I recognised Adrian's architecture. Very 'New Englandish' houses and things...

  3. Handsome looking game, Rodger! So, the American tactic of allowing the French to do the early, heavy lifting failed this time.
