Encounter at Gureña River (18th Juy, 1812)

Post by bvera » Tue Aug 30, 2016 3:55 pm

have just posted in my blog the scenario played last weekend.
This is a not so small affair that took place on 18th july 1812, a few days after the Salamanca battle, involving several thousand French, British and Portuguese troops.

An attempt to outflank Wellington while tretiring from toro to Salamanca concluded with an outright defeat of the French; the consequences were limited as the British did not pursue their foes, being exhausted after several days of marching and countermarching.

Hope you like it

Excellent scenario. Now I'm going to have to invest in much more cavalry.

Not even nearly - all my Napoleonics are a small number collected for SP 1!
However, if I get the cavalry, I'll be able to do Corunna as well...

Wow, this is a really interesting scenario. I especially like the deployment/activation restrictions used to represent the initial disorder of the British position.
