Picton's battle

French Lancers destroy the British center

Three French battalions aren't up to the task of pushing out the 42nd Highlanders from the chateau.

One British regiment is not able to hold off three times its number on a hill on the left flank.

With a long weekend I put together another Napoleonic battle.  Picton's divison of three brigades is trying to hold off portions of two French infantry divisions and a brigade of lancers.  After six turns things don't look good for old Picton.  His center has been shattered and his left has been driven back by superior numbers.  Only on his right are his men holding their own.
