The left Column under the General himself had become bogged down fighting the strongly entrenched Navarese Brigade on the San Jorge Hill amongst the walled church yard. The centre Column under Van Halen (real name) had advanced with only slight resistance around the edge of the Churchyard and the right column under Conrad was forming up to take on the Carlist Cavalry whilst their own Cavalry moved up in support.
This is where things began to get interesting.
At this point Van Halen decides that he must dispose of the Navarese before continuing to attack the town.
The Cavalry for both sides becomes embroiled in a fierce melee in the centre right until eventually just two squadrons of Carlist lancers remain from a total of 12 for both sides.
The Legion line out to face this threat and then refuse their flank.
A great game, but I would need to consider the balance if I did it again as the task was too much for the Isabelino's. The original Scenario calls for 9 battalions to attack 18. However a great game had by all and the worth of the amendments proved.
The two main areas we looked at were moving before firing with penalties if you do both and then a brigade break test at 50% rather than just breaking automatically.
These both worked really well indeed and enhanced the game so will now be part of how we play this going forward.
I will do some shots of the Winged Hussars and Polish Cossacks from the painting bench next and then hopefully the basing department will have started to catch up and have some completed units to share.
