At Sea

Another small demo of Napleonic naval power, as Matt considers using Paul's set of 19th Century naval rules, as last used for the Ironclad Battle of Lissa (and not the smaller Napoleonic era one), to do next years planned Trafalgar game.

Usual scenario, a larger French force vs a smaller but better crewed British one.

We left Paul to single-handedly (like a pirate?) deal with Matt's squadron as we picked, two to one, upon the weaker British squadron in the hopes of a quick victory.

The British just managed to inflict the break point damage first, the French were only about one decent broadside from achieving the same so the scenario appeared to be well balanced.
