As it was Fathers day yesterday I managed to get some time to set a small 4 by 4ft board on my painting table for a game.
The game featured my classic Napoleonics in their first game. I am using the Charge rules using smaller units and half scaled distances with a few modifications.
The game pits Ney vs Wellington. The French are attacking and need to drive the British back and capture the road leading of the rear edge of the table.
The table is much smaller than my old 10 by 6 table located in the cellar of my old house.
The French attack with their left lead by Davout and a Polish battalion supported by the 10th Light Infantry.
The British right is defended by 2 battalions of the Fusilier brigade.
Picton encourages the fusiliers as the French artillery starts to find it range.
The French right holds fast as the Guards heavy artillery open fire on the Nassau and Brunswickers on the British left.
Murat leads forward the French cavalry trying to out flank the Fusiliers.
The British Cavalry cover the French Cavalry advance supported by Mercers RHA.
Wellington turns to Mack. Stop looking at that map Mack.
To be continued.
