I have posted some thoughts as to which scenarios will be done. In the meantime the painting of figures continues and new orders for miniatures have been placed and the research is moving along at good tempo.
The plan is to create a gallery that I can add pictures of elements or commands as they are done, much as I did for the Orc/Goblin collection. By the end of this week I should have photos of all the insurgents with a limited number of British and Portuguese posted.
My priority at the moment is to have figures painted to begin play testing the six selected scenarios.
The French cavalry are four elements of Cv and have Franceschi as their commander. Two more elements of dragons are off table and make their appearance at the board edge (west side) on turn four.
Although the Spanish are classed as Line and light elements, all are under strength and should use factors of +3, +2 against foot and mounted respectively. The same factors are used for the three militia units.
The conflict is fought as between two small commands which are part of a big battle sixe army which is off table. Demoralisation is reached when two elements are lost; for the French this means they are repulsed (game over) and the Spanish continue their retreat despite being demoralised and gain a minor victory.
Corps Cavalry General Franceschi 1st Hussars, 8th Dragoons, 22nd Chasseurs, Hanoverian Chevaux-Léger
Rear Guard General Mahy Line - Zamora (nr.7) and Majorca (nr.17) Light - Barcelona (Lt.) and Aragon (nr.25 or Lt.) Conscript - Orense (Mil), Betanzos (Mil) and Segovia (Mil) None were more than 200 bayonets strong,
Next on the work bench are the British comprising of two generals, seven elements of foot and two artillery and should be half way near completion by tonight so details can be added over the next two or three days. These Old Glory 15s are surprisingly crisp castings and have plenty of detail; belts, lace, tabs, straps and buckles which can easily be overlooked.
The painting of flags for both Portuguese and British foot is also planned for this week.
Two and half years ago the DBA-HX (Humberside Extension), through the efforts of a dozen Fanatici, was adapted for use with 3.0.
Having completed the draft of six scenarios for this project, I have discovered the need for a few additional rules, nothing earth shattering, but ones that will add an extra ‘Napoleonic’ seasoning to the game.
These will be tested in the upcoming scenarios and highlighted as new if you wish to try them out.
