Love the video. Who would have thought that watching two middle aged gents playing games in the bedroom for two hours could be quite so much fun!!😂😂

More war-games porn please Rich. 😊

Really enjoyed the video.

I learned 2 things, one rule and one in respect to playing the game.

I had not realized that the brigadier could join up with an unit to improve outcome in charges and melee for free. I think I confused this with the Glory tasking.

What struck me though was Dave's rapid advance, I think after watching this video that the reason we are not getting our games done in 3 hours that we are dawdling about too much, the attacker just needs to get stuck in and attack.

Looking forward to the new scenario book.

Hi John,

This scenario only has 10 turns so there is no time to hang around!

We played the smaller version of Mont St Jean yesterday . We got 10 turns in on 3 hours and will finish off next week- the advantage of a mate with a wargames room- and by turn 3, using Forwards options and taking a few risks, we had French brigades on the British slopes!

Re: Battle of Osma : QUESTION about RETREAT

Hi Dave,
very useful video, I encorage you to do others ....specially those covering the main topics like complex Charges.
Just a question about the video :
I noted the following case :
a British line A is under enemy fire and it is supported by another British line B just behind A.
"A unit" failed Discipline test with Retreat result and then during Retreat movement , it makes Unformed "B unit" and after "A" goes on for 30 cm (total distance).
The question is :
Could "A" stop movement just behind "B" unit ( B being a supporting Close Order unit ) ??

Great video guys, keep 'em comin'!!
At around the one hour mark when the KGL charged the artillery battery the total received fire produced a total of 4 hits plus a DT. However you went straight to Charge Combat without taking the test. Was that a slip or should I have consulted the rules before posting?
Regards to all,
Darren.

SWS,

An off screen roll, that I clearly passed - or at least that's what I told Richard! ;)
