Re: Re-Fight of the Battle of Bailen

So I used the Saxon chevaulegers with French lancer heads. Are you on the GdeA Facebook group? I would put a picture up there, but I cant get into my photobucket folder. Is it the FB General d’Armee group that says its based in Bologna? I abandoned photobucket when they changed their business model...

Re: Re-Fight of the Battle of Bailen

Thanks. I did theJoseph chevaulegers without lance based on the Luis Sorando articles. There is also a book that he did on Joseph’s army that I have coming in the mail. Lovely painting by the way. If you want more command figures, the 1806 Prussian set has some likely types. I also use the 1806 Pru...

Re: Re-Fight of the Battle of Bailen

John, Your comment caused me to look at the Flickr albums which I haven't updated recently. I've added a couple more Spanish photos and two more albums - one of French troops I painted up for Bailen (e.g., Garde de Paris) and one of Joseph-Napoleon's army which is in preparation for Talavera and, wi...

Re: Re-Fight of the Battle of Bailen

Thanks for the scenario SD. Nice to see some Spanish on the table. I loved your ABs in your Flickr folder by the way. The lancers are British LD with the lances added? John Thanks, John and zabarr. Yes, the lancers are British LD with added lances. The AB resting light dragoons had just the right p...

Re-Fight of the Battle of Bailen

It took a long time to get the required troops painted up - Garde de Paris and loads of Spanish, but I finally got to re-fight the Battle of Bailen. The re-fight assumes that Dupont concentrated his army before attacking the Spanish left and centre instead of the historical piecemeal attacks as each...

Re: Defending Support Unit

Thanks for responding, dakkadakka.

A good idea for allowing the option for the support to be re-directed - of course, presuming the support battalion is led by a 'Sharpe' commander.

Defending Support Unit

Hi, A situation came up where three battalions from the same brigade are in a line - A, B and C. The enemy declares charges on battalions A and C. The charges are resolved simultaneously. B is within flank supporting distance of both A and C and MUST provide support to a defending target. My assumpt...

Re: Vitoria Scenario Book - skirmishes bases

Thanks, DB. That’s what I suspected.

I was mostly interested in the thinking because I’m converting some of the scenarios from the GdB books for GdA.

Vitoria Scenario Book - skirmishes bases

Hi, I’m looking forward to playing theses scenarios - now that I have it in my electronic hands. I just have a couple of very minor questions. 1j Skirmisher bases are listed for each brigade, which is great, but sometimes the number are in accordance with the rules and sometimes not. For example: Re...
