1857 - Village water suppies pt 2.

Indian Mutiny 28mm game, A small British and Indian Army face each other on the battle, the Mutineers form before the village and it's suppy of water, the British knowing they have no choice but to attack and secure the village and its importance for the army.

Game was 10 moves, with the British artillery opening with the first blood drawn.

Artillery became a massive problem for the British, some really good dice rolling from the Indian fire caused gaps in the ranks.

British artillery was put in a good position on the hill but long distance shooting did not weaken the enemy.

Infantry companies moved forward towards the village, a couple of british companies had the long distance Enfield rifle which shot away with no reply from the Enemy Sepoy.

Enemy cavalry rushed forward on the British left flank to give them something to think about, all the dice rolling was going for the Mutineers.

View of the battlefield, for the British it became a hard slog

The British line had no choice but to push hard to take the village, toe to toe fire and the flanks exposed this looks like a bad day for the Brits.

The British right flank now became the rear attack as the Artillery had to also push forward towards the village in support of the British line.

British collapsed in the heat and try to escape the battlefield, bad day at the office.

The Victorian Outpost is a new building created at the beginning of 2016, we can cater for almost any period and we now have the support of "Adrians Walls" and "Hovels Buildings" who have come on board.

Victorian Outpost has quickly become the number one wargaming place in Grimsby with its friendly welcome and fun place to visit, please pm myself to arrange a set time and date.

Its a interesting one, odds are always against the British sometimes up to 10-1 and mixing them up Sepoys and British line makes you think how to use tactics.
