28mm BP Peninsula 1812 - Action at Rueda Crossroads
« on: December 07, 2013, 10:07:18 AM »
On Thursday I setup a 8 player 28mm Black Powder game at Hugh Wilson's based on a fictional action during the retreat from Burgos in 1812.  The table was 12ft by 5 ft.  Terrain provided by Hugh and the figures  by Dave O'Brien, Donald Adamson and myself.


View from north with 3rd Brigade deployed along the stream - Burgos to Salamanca highway in distance


To the south the Army of Portugal makes mass attack on the hill line


Action as the Army of the North forces the stream line.  My Bavarians have not been in out for a while hence this outing.

Game worked well and proved fun.  Some very heroic actions especially from the British holding back the army of Portugal.  Full report with scenario, OB and how the game played at
