This Kublacon I ran my first ever Wooden Wars naval action, wherein the HMS Smeagol had orders to transport and support British troops in taking a French coastal fort on Pont du Mouton, a heavily gunned, yet lightly garrisoned shore fort that defends the harbor of the Port city of Qu'est -ce que le Troupeau.


In this scenario, the gunboats had to row for at least 4 turns before making it to the beach, all the time being fired upon by the fort of 8 guns, defended by a well oiled, albeit not so veteran garrison.


for more on the battle, and whether or not the sheep survived, row on over to my blog
