Map of South Cobb High School Pirates game 05-08-2009 25mm Pirates battle description and Capt Radzig




South Cobb High Wargame pirate map Stonehaven village St. Pryces Island 05-08-2009
There were 9 units of 10 pirates each with 5 ships at anchor.
The objectives of the pirates was to pillage the town and escape before
the garrison woke up to catch them. The available ships were only enough
to carry 5 groups of the pirates to safety including treasure.

During the Raid Capt Radzig faces off against Redbeard after a broken Parley
Govt troops are close on there heels and the natives are restless

Native tribal cannibals were roaming the island.

The natives were extremely troublesome to the pirates.



One group of pirates did escape on two ships but with out any treasure.

The Colonial garrison's artillery kept targeting the pirate's treasure wagons/carts and destroying

the treasures the Garrison was supposed to be protecting.

Guess the only good pirate was a dead one.





2 small boats escaped Pirate Mara Cobb and Pirate Lori Cobb, the female high seas threats, took loads of Chinese silk back with them.





A third small boat sank when it hit a sand bar. Lack of good navigation will do that.



Scattered in the town waiting for the pirates were groups of colonial militia.

Isolated units of regulars delayed the Pirates long enough to allow the Marines and

the three commanding officers to muster out for a reckoning of the pirate raid.



also one isolated garrison unit commandeered one of pirate sloops and set off after the

fleeing pirates. Marines were a 20 figure unit with a sailor contingent of another 24.



Pirate figures were Old Glory, Eureka and Foundry. Buildings included Dan Fox Miniatures as

well as docks and fountain by Miniature Building Authority.

Pirate artillery was by Eureka, Garrison artillery included a warhammer fantasy siege gun.

Marines and sailors were Old Glory and Connoisseur
