Great game put on by the rules designer - Charlie. The scenario was the battle of Bailen. I was one of the Spanish players commanding a division on the southern flank. In this battle, the Spanish had seized the town of Bailen with one force while two other forces moved in to help reinforce them. The two moving forces were also slowly encircling the French forces. While the Spaniards held the town, the French were trying to retake the town whlile preventing the Spanish from encircling them.
The forces were pretty equal in that the Spanish had superior numbers while the French had a slight advantage in quality.
Here are some photos of the game:
|My division deployed along the river just south of the French attempting to attack into Bailen.|
|The French in the south had to face south in reaction to my division at the river as well as north to attack into Bailen. It was not an easy tactical situation.|
|The French move on Bailen from the south. A small Spanish brigade attacks from the west.|
|Our valiant French foes! (l to r) Kevin and Byron were commanders attacking from the North. Charlie, the GM. Ralph, commander here on the southern sector.|
Overall, I had a really good time playing the game. Charlie is making some changes to his rules to help make them a bit easier to play. I think he is getting very close to finishing all of the edits for Version 2 of the rules.
