There was much to catch up on, and we ended up chewing the fat and BS'ing for a couple hours, with the miniatures taking a secondary role to conversation. I did want everyone out there though to know that "rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated" and that I'm still around. Just not blogging as much the last 2 weeks...
Our scenario was a French attack set in the Peninsula. The units consisted of an Anglo Portuguese division fighting against a big French Division. We also had a small Cavalry Division on each side which definitely added to the excitement, for the turns we were able to play!
Rules were Black Powder (my favorite H&M rules set).
|The British defense line. Picton's Division|
|The French, coming on in "the same old way"|
|British Dragoons leading off, followed by Brunswickers, then KGL Cavalry. A force to be reckoned with!|
|French Cavalry Division. Hussars, Dragoons, and Lancers|
|French Right Brigade - slow to get started (They failed their first movement)|
|Dave forms his infantry into squares on his left.|
|Small Portuguese brigade.|
|"I'm going to vaporize your Cavalry"|
|My Hussars don't evade..|
|Kellermann wonders where his Hussars went.|
|Gaping hole in the French center|
|French Battalion gets a hit on it from Artillery fire|
|French elite Grenadier Battalion in square in response to Dave's Cavalry charge!|
