This game had started before the conclusion of Game 5, so the players did not know that they were playing out a potentially series ending match.
|The Lancers came out triumphant over the Cossacks|
Cossacks spotted very early enabled Polish Big Man (officer) to send for re-inforcements. With the run of the cards the fighting between the opposing forces was fairly even, more stand-offish with a few individual combats. Only inflicting light wounds.This has been a lot of fun to organize and now I must report off the Campaign critical information to the relevant player.
Cossack Big Man eventually was able to send for the troops but it was too late.
The remainder of the Polish Line Lancers, 60 strong which had been held back as a reserve, arrived on the front and right flank of the Cossacks. The Cossacks used their expert riding skills to leave the field of battle VERY quickly, leaving 25% of their original number (16) dead or too seriously injured on the field.
After a short pursuit the Polish Squadron commander reined his troops in and returned to their starting point, job done. He did however double the level of skirmishing troops to his front. And moved his reserve position closer to them just in case!!!
Thank you, Mike, Rafa, Jim, Peter and Eric for your actions in this Skirmish Series!
