Ventosa - The Game - Part One

We are playing this scenario with Black Powder, Albion Triumphant 2. Originally it was going to be with General De Brigade, but I didn't quite have enough figures painted and wanted to get on with it before I go on holiday.
French - Dave

Allies - Scotty

"Impartial" umpire - me

We have got up to turn 9 and Scotty has a report here:

Here are  the pics I've taken so far:


Solignac's brigade start to move forward.

"We know they're up there somewhere!"

After obstinately refusing to move for a while, Bowes' Brigade moves forward to support the line. Perhaps they suspected that they would be needed somewhere other than where they were ordered to go......

Because once they started to move forward, Brennier's brigade appeared on the flank.By this time Solignac's Brigade was broken.

Two attack columns go in.......

and eventually break one of Ferguson's battalions. One of Bowes' battalions forms square in the face of an attack by French Dragoons.
