The other Indian section are becoming more and more pinned down.
While the Bengal Lancers come under a withering fire from the central ruin.
To make things even worse for the Imperial forces a band of mounted Pathans sweep onto the field.
The blinking screw gunners couldn't hit a barn door, they rolled a one to hit three or four times in this game.
The commander of the Bengal Lancers had to take shelter in the ruins as his men were shot out of their saddles. Hiding in the ruins he is hard to hit but accurate Pathan fire scores a pin marker and he is forced out of the objective under a hail of bullets.
The mounted Pathans recklessly charge the British section who react with devastating fire. Only the leader makes it into melee and he dies swiftly, he does kill one Brit however.
The two Ghazis pass their morale and charge the gunners.
The gunners might not be very good shots, but by jingo they can fight.
The remaining Indian section with three pin markers manages to rally.
And immediately take fire from their tormentors.
Losing more casualties.
The Brits break cover and advance on the enemy positions. Giving fire as they advance.
But they come under accurate fire and lose four men.
Gor blimey, a hit at last!.
But the Pathans dive for cover and casualties are light.
The Indian section storm forward and take the objective with the bayonet and rifle butt.
The seventh and final turn sees the British section charge the central objective.
Victory goes to the Pathans.
What a cracking game!. I enjoyed it so much that I am going to replay it despite having birthday goodies vying for attention.
