That's quite something. Thanks for posting the link.
I would like to thank you! After having played a dozen of HoW SYW games, I wanted to test the flexibility of the rules to their limits, so I chose this "exotic" scenario. I just posted another thread with the Lobositz scenario, as we palyed it in our club.
- the self made fort looks great. Unfortunately the walls are too big for scenarios where the fortifications are for scenery or eye candy only (as I woul use it for my Rocoux-Scenario).
- the siege-rules work well
- it's difficult to storm the walls, I assume that the defenders get heavy cover etc.
- maybe the attacker needs large numbers of man
Thank you for your comments about the fort! I tried to make it as condensed as possible and it has taken part in battles as the main objective, but also for scenery as well. You may have a closer look to many pics at the links below.
In our siege game, it was really difficult to storm the walls, the attackers had many casualties, two whole brigades were done for and a third was so badly mauled that could not return for a third time. Of course the defenders had heavy cover and were able to repulse the ladders, so the attack could stall for one more round, causing additional hits to the attackers. As a consequence, the attackers would need double the numbers of figures used to have a good chance to take the fort, they managed to set foot in two places, but were thrown back or annihilated. Thank you for your interest!
What a great looking battlefield. On the Pendraken Forum we have been trying for some time to get the company to produce 10mm C18th Ottomans.
Thank you! I just talked to Miltiades today and I smell we are going to have soon either the continuation of this siege by the Ottomans (and the intervention of a new Russian relief force together with some... unpleasant surprises for both sides) or a Vauban fort siege with Prussians vs Austrians and French.
