Napoleonic Peninsula Game (March 2014)

Napoleonic Peninsula Game

Organised by Robert

This was a WRG rule set game organised by Robert using one of his corps that he will be using as part of his Army of Portugal in our 1812 Peninsula Campaign (which we hope starts by the end of 2014).

See the pictures below.
There was ex-ordinary Spanish gunnery on the day.

A Spanish mass waiting

Saxon Garde du Corps and Portuguese Legion pushing into the village

French in the centre push forward against Spanish cavalry and 

French squares how odd, does that mean cavalry that is not French on the table

I think I see Westphalian flags again

Spanish cavalry storming across the stream

Spanish facing a French line

Looks like the Portuguese Legion has taken the church with Spanish guns about to renovate

British advancing against the French through the fields

British and French Dragoons fight it out

So who are these guns firing at again, poor Italians

British and KGL Heavy Dragoons mixing it up with French Dragoons

Advance I say, advance
It was a bloody day, the Spanish did better than expected by all, except the Spanish.
Have to have another of these.
