1st game in the SP2 Sugar Islands campaign

Post by mluther »

This was the first scenario for the 1759 Sugar Islands campaign. I am basing it on the booklet by Stuart Insch-Wargaming the Sugar Islands Campaigns:A Guide to the British Expedition to Martinique and Guadaloupe in 1759.
https://stuartinschwargames.blogspot.co ... lands.html
It involved British marines and seaman securing a fort on Point Negro outside Fort Royale on Martinique. Royal navy warships have silenced the guns but the Marines must drive off the remaining defenders to ensure that guns will not be put back in service.
The backside of the fort has a incomplete earthwork protecting it-more extensive than what is left to man it. William had just 2) 8 men groups of Compaignes de la Marine and 2) 8 man groups of Cannoneers 16 troops and 4 Big men. Their deployment point was back at the point of the fleche. John had the British landing force. I used my Grenadiers for the marines. He had 2) 3X8 man groups of marines (grenadiers) and a 12 man group of seaman. Total of 60 men and 4 Big men(III lvl, 2-II lvl and one lvl I man) to begin with. The scenario gives 16 points of support for the attacker which John used for an extra Lvl II and Lvl I leader, a marksman, and a water cart and a ammo cart.
They start from the right road edge.

I wish I could make these games more often. That looked like great fun.

I'm progressing. Doc still won't let me have solid food for another 2 weeks. But I am starting to feel better.
