2015 Black Powder Scenario

From a local United States Blogger Spanish Ulcer Napoleonics


An after action report of a small Napoleonic game using Black Powder rules. A French advance guard bumps into a small Spanish holding force, backed by a few battalions of British who are marching to support them.
Three battalions of regular infantry, three militia battalions, three partisan bands and two batteries.
Two light infantry battalions, a battalion of rifles (split into two Tiny units and one Small) and a regiment of Light Dragoons.
Three brigades of infantry, one battery, two cavalry regiments.
Set Up
San Felipe
The Spanish started in possession of the hacienda and the village of San Felipe.  They had a strong position on the left behind the stone walls that lined the road. One guerrilla band occupied the hacienda and armed priests started at the church. The final guerrilla band was hidden from the French. Two British rifle companies started on the board – one with the hidden guerrilla unit and one in the hamlet north of the crossroads.
