An allied attempt was made last night to assault the Russian defences around Sebastopol but it was eventually repulsed by sheer Russian doggedness (and poor allied dice). The allies will need a lot more heavy artillery before they try that again!
The allied plan was that the siege lines would be held by the British while the French columns turned the Russian left and assaulted the works from the flank. Russian artillery however decided otherwise.
Figures are mainly Eureka 18mm with some Old Glory 15mm French to make up the numbers. Rules were home grown and will have to be tweaked before the next assault.
The French were later repulsed. It was a most enjoyable game but more siege artillery will have to be shipped out from Europe if Sebastopol is to be taken.
