Of course this leads me to wonder if attacking troops get experience from siege if they win the siege by starving the defenders out?
OK this is going way too far. The dang British dragoons are back inside Boston! (at least I think it’s the same unit) Well not technically inside as the entire British force appears to be outside of the city proper now having combined together under Gage’s command. Either way though, no way troops from outside should be allowed into an area under siege, whether or not the defending army is inside or outside of a city.
(can’t order a forced march for some reason) so Arnold will arrive in November.
I hope the two supply wagons with his army are enough to carry them through an assault on the fort when they arrive. Winter can be brutal so I hope to storm the fort before my army freezes to death. It all depends on how long my supply wagons can last.
Global combat value of the units initially committed: your side: 603, the opponent: 640.
Total number of hits suffered: your side 107, the opponent 110.
As I look this over it appears that the continental army had a slight edge in everything except initial combat values. But Washington still chose to roll for a retreat on day 1 hour 1 and succeeded. My question is why? I had the army set to defensive posture, not passive, so why the choice to retreat even before the battle had begun?
If it’s a morale question, the British suffered more failures than the Continentals, so you would think that would have heartened the defense. But for some odd reason my commander in chief decides to turn tail and run and now the British are unleashed!
It consisted of the British Dragoons and an Indian unit of all things. The force was wiped out, but to my chagrin Sir, Benjamin Lincoln was killed in the battle. I have overwhelming force but my second in command dies even though we suffered no hits (hearts) and wiped out the British?
hoping Montgomery gets a breach this turn and causes some hits (not sure if it’s even possible since he doesn’t start the turn already sieging the fort)
Of course Patterson’s defense rating of 3 is considerably less than Glover’s 6, but I’m at a loss as to whether this is a good or bad move overall. I wish I knew the inner workings of everything better. Is a higher defense rating better overall than offsetting a +1 siege advantage? I have no idea.
I also see the John Glover is still the commander of the Springfield army even though he’s a colonel and John Patterson is a Brigadier Genera
That wily fox Brown out-smarted me again. In what appears to be a psychic move on his part. Brown marched from Ramseur’s Mill to Augusta to capture that undefended city after my garrison there had moved out towards Camden this turn to link up next turn with Arnold and his charismatic trait.
The turn report text area states “The soldiers of 5th Continental have been trained with success”, but there is no training officer with them. I guess troops will train on their own as well. The troops did spend a considerable period of time with Washington last year (has training trait level 2), so perhaps it’s simply that training taking effect after a delayed period.
I had assumed the spring levies would have appeared by now so I checked the manual and was alarmed to learn they are supposed to be levied in February and July each year. Does that mean I failed to levy anything in February? Looks like I’m in real trouble, I had assumed I’d have troops to garrison New York and Philly with but no way will those cities still be mine by July, now that Howe is free to head south.
It would be nice if someone could confirm whether a superior leader present in an area with a charismatic leader interferes with the disbandment mod even if they are not in the same stack. I know the superior leader will command any battle fought, so I assume he’s in command no matter how the area is stacked up.
