Chris is seen head in hands as he realises he is attacking two brigades with only one of his own
In terms of numbers there were 19 Carlist Battalions of Foot and 20 Liberals, The Liberals also had an advantage in Cavalry with 6 squadrons to Carlist 4. But half of this Cavalry was off table and the Carlist foot was much better than the Liberals.
The right flank Carlists now began to punish the Militia to their front despite being outnumbered as the white caps are driven off by Liberal cavalry.

Guard Grenadier Cavalry charge the Navaerese in a vain attempt to shore up the middle
Hussars D'Arlaban and Princessa Hussars battle it out, all heavily converted Perry figures.
As over half of the Liberal army runs away the rest decide that it is better to live to fight another day and the retreat begins.
A really enjoyable game, I took some liberties with the army list to make it more playable. In reality the Carlist flanking force was 6 battalions not 3 and there was no cavalry reserve. In the end neither of these changes altered the outcome of a very hard fought game.
I do hope you enjoy reading this and as mentioned next up will be more pictures with our thoughts on how the rules played.
Thanks for reading.
