The Portuguese side is composed of few small detachments of veteran soldiers from the Indian campaigns, protected by their European-style bulwarks and artillery they hope to resist for as long as they can... With the siege growing even more desperate they can expect a few unskilled citizen groups to come to their aid.
The Ottoman-Gujarat forces are superior in numbers but their distrust for one another might prove fatal in the earlier turns from the actions of the Janissary detachments, they must weather out constant bombardments from Portuguese cross-fire forts or their naval support and be sure to overhelm their enemies with their numbers. With the progress of the siege sappers will be brought in to weaken the defensive structures allowing the Ottomans to eventually exploit a breach.
11 turns representing the siege from the 4th of September to 1st of November 1938, so logistic/supply system, Economic phase (still in the works, perhaps 3 in total for each side every 3 days), can not recruit lost units.
Base production for both factions is around 6 each with the Portuguese having the advantage of a small stream of supplies coming from Goa to help with the siege every 3 turns. The Ottomans are hampered by the sabotage of a few Gujarat nobles that do not wish to mantain a decent supply out of fear that the Ottomans might replace them as the local rulers, forcing them to govern themselves with the few supplies they brought along, sacking the city could prove to be a good source of income yet very damaging to the VP of a player.
This will be my first attempt at trying the editor so I decided to go for a smaller scenario in the form of a short siege (around 11 turns), will keep you updated as for now my major difficulties will be the artwork and finding a good balance between the factions (while also trying to make a siege as interesting as possible).
Portuguese forces are distributed as follows:
1- António da Silveira (3 star commander) 2 Aventureiros ( 2 life points) 4 Arquebusiers (2 life points)
2-Martim Afonso de Sousa(2 star commander) 1 Aventureiro (2 life points) 2 arquebusiers (2 life points)
3- Francisco Pacheco(1 star commander), Arquebusiers (1 life point), Pikemen(1 life point)
4- Antonio Sousa Coutinho (1star commander) 1 Arquebusier (1 life point)
3 Bulwarks (Bunker like structures with (?) health points each)
3 spread across the moat in front of the initial portuguese starting positions:
Baluarte de Santiago
Baluarte de São Tomé
Baluarte da Barra
2 Fortlets (bunker like structures with (?) health points each)
Fortim to Mar
