Irregulars in Action - Hostage Rescue....

For scenario see previous post .....
 
---oXo---
 
The Irregulars and some Jagers prepare to move forwards ....
 The irregulars have crossed the river, while the jagers secure the next coppice ....
The jagers engage the brigand's lookouts, as the Irregulars continue their advance
 The lookouts retire under heavy fire and alert the camp ....
 The brigands now alerted, prepare to defend themselves ....
The main group of Irregulars make an ill advised rush into a coppice; some of them are hit and go down, the rest fall back under covering fire from the jagers....
Meanwhile the small group of mounted Irregulars had ridden round the back of the camp and achieved complete surprise ...
The riders charge in with pistols blazing and recah the captives ....
Meanwhile the Grey Rider impatient and concerned about the Irregulars moves up his small detachment of Feldjagers and disperses the brigands .....
The captives now released, prepare to share a horse with a couple of their rescuers to make their getaway ...
The Grey rider checks that the ladies are OK...
Aftre some sporadic skirmishing the brigands melt away into the woods; the rescue party returns home in good spirits...

The Irregulars were lowsy shots most of the way through the game, except towards the end when they started knocking off a few brigands - obviously their aim improved over time when under fire !

The Irregulars did take casulaties however none were killed; 4 with light wounds and two badly wounded. One feldjager was wounded and one jager was killed; On the brigands side they lost 10men (out of ~30).
