By Fire & Sword: Battle between patrols AAR
« on: May 14, 2013, 11:41:00 AM »
This was a very interesting skirmish battle since we had two elite forces. We had the Swedish skirmish force made up of Veterans only, seasoned Reiters in armor and excellent Dragoons. Truly the crack troops of the Swedish army. The opposition was the Lithuanian raiding force led by Wincenty Gosiewski and his Winged Hussars, backed seasoned Reiters, Dragoons and cossack style cavalry.

Army lists looked like this:

"Gosiewski Foray" (Lithuanian Raiding force): 11 points

Colonel Wincenty Gosiewski (4 command points)
Liuetenant Colonel Herman von Gantskopf (1 command point)
3 bases of Polish Dragoons
5 bases of seasoned Reiters
3 bases of Winged Hussars, with lances
4 bases of cossack style cavalry

Swedish Skirmish force: 10 points

1 Colonel (3 command points)
1 Lieutenant-Colonel (1 command point)
5 bases of Veteran Reiters with Arquebus
5 bases of Veteran Reiters with cuirass
4 bases of Veteran Dragoons

These two elite war bands clashed in the "Patrol" scenario. Andreas wanted to try out the Polish-Lithuanian stuff so he played the Gosiewski force, I played the Swedes. The additional effect was that a terrain piece was moved on the battlefield, it did not impact this game overall.

The scenario objectives were simple, there are three tokens on the table that represent areas to be reconnoitered by both forces. To do that, you need to have a unit or a commander within 10cm from a token at the end of your re-organization phase (end of a turn). Each objective is worth 2 points, and both sides can each gather 6 points this way in the scenario - however - each force may only truly earn these points if they have at least 1 commander left alive at the end of the battle. If all commanders in a force get killed then all those victory points are lost with them!

Excuse my ignorance, but what period is this?
