Hope you all find a suitable way of celebrating another memorable bicentenary.

I shall be holding a review later of my British troops, especially Cadogan's brigade (1/50th, 1/71st and 1/92nd) in memory of their action on the heights of Puebla. (I'm only singling them out because I've actually GOT them).

Ill have a beer to them all tonight. Particulary Pictons 3rd Division.

A Vittoria game is going to be played at our club today, and the club day already happens to be today!

We did one two weeks ago. 12 players.

Midpoint: How did the game turn out? And how did you have room for 12 players!

Has anyone ever had the French win this one, or get away clean?

I am participating in a Vittoria game on Sunday with the Liphook Historical Wargames Club. There should be 15 players and 3 umpires on a massive table at 1:60 figure ratio.

I hope the French do not win as I am part of the British team, in the central Light Division and 4 Division sector.

Played it twice this month, once using the CC:N scenario from Expansion 1 which features the central action with the Light Division, then again using similar terrain and forces but using Lasalle rules.

In both cases the French won – the problem is that without surprise, the Light Division struggles to get across the Zadorra under the French guns. Hence the French usually win the CC:N version (which does not cover Picton's crossing).

Judged as a British victory – we captured the baggage in V. Much of the French army would have got away though.

We used Black Powder, so everyone had 4-6 units to command.

just completed part one of our refight, so far indecisive as the French withdraw quicker than the British can keep up and keep Graham at bay across the Zadorra keeping the road to Bayonne open…
