|105th Rifles about to be flushed from cover.|
As the Chasseurs fell back one Elf and one Dog battalion began an assault on the hill in assault column. The 105th Rifles fell back in disarray as the Elves of the line fought through the hedge on the left.
On the right side of the field, the Hussars de Juennes were able to dispute a small hill by arriving there before the Joccian Rats of the Starthcarnage and Kilmore. In fact the rats, not having had time to form square were driven back by the advance of the horseelves. The following Orc battalion was able to form square but the Rats were still dressing their lines when Ferach heavy battery unleashed a round of grape, and the Hussars charged home.
|Avant! The Elves concentrate force on the Orc left.|
Now down to half strength, the Rats withdrew behind the square of their Orcish fellows. Said Orcs being in a bad way with Hussars prowling about and and a heavy battery and line battalion in support.
Only one Orc battalion remained uncommitted, on Vimeiro Hill itself. With two line battalions approaching from the front and the collapse of the square only a matter of time, the Albion command ordered a withdrawal.
Good fun as always and I think the very first time I have prevailed against Albion. Huzzah!
Thanks for stopping by!
