In this encounter, I had seven leaders for each side as well as three command cards. I tried to keep things simple so I could just get through as many turns as possible. The French had the objective of taking a town from a combined force of British and Spanish.
|This is the village. It was also the deployment point for the British/Spanish forces.|
The first conflict came between a British light company that occupied a small farm on a hill and an opposing German company of skirmishers. Over the course of three turns the Germans came out a little bit ahead.
|The Brits have lost a figure and received three shock points; the Germans have suffered only one shock point.|
The next turn I used two command tokens to charge a troop of dragoons at the now unloaded Spanish companies. The dragoons won the melee and drove back the Spaniards 9 inches. But later in the turn, Captain Sharp's company of rifles was able to pour in a volley and take out another figure from the dragoons and add some more shock.
|The victorious dragoons take additional casualties from Sharp's company of rifles.|
