Lovely stuff :-* :-* :-*
Nice to see someone actually playing some games. The LAF seems very quiet at the moment.

What you needed was some New Orleans Greys to beef up the Texian line  :D

Brilliant battle report  8) Love them Ox wagons but I've seen the Texians before  ;)

 
Well I've lead an evil life, so they say, but I'll outrun the Devil on judgement day.

This was just an excuse to push figures around the table and roll lots of dice. No  historical background, just a Mexican stand off or not as it turned out...

The initial positions with Messrs Capitano Blood and Cabo Bibbly to the left and Silent "Up and at 'Em" Invader and myself holding the Teixan positions on the right.



My texian cavalry prepare to advance on Blood's soldados.





Silent "Up and at 'Em Invader gets carried away and charges his cavalry against Cabo Bibbly's lancers. Ouch! Needless to say they didn't last long....



Capitano Bloods Soldados advance on the left.



Having made short work of the Texian cavalry Bibbly's lancers go on to charge the infantry too.



Cabo Bibbly's big hand of dice (28) in total rolled against the infantry when his lancers crashed into them...



More photos later. :D

The figure in the heavy coat is he a front rank Spanish?
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Having secured my first objective by getting musketeers onto a roof, the blood was up and and I became carried away with the moment.......for which my poor Texian lads  paid a hefty price.  :-[

Yes, with some green stuff, to make him more Tejano than Spanish :)
