Hi all,

I've posted a report of the game we played just after Christmas recreating the key events of the Battle of Corunna and the fighting around Elvina and on the Monte Mero Heights behind the town.

Yes indeed an excellent AAR along with good terrain and superbly painted figures. Well done.

I always look forward to your battle reports. Thanks for sharing them.

Hi Losh,
Nice picture. You can't beat doing Napoleonics in the grand manner.

Nice report. Are the skirmishers just for show? I thought that in C&G they were "factored in".

Hi Grossman, thank you,

Yes and no. The skirmish lines indicate where the skirmish battle is happening as in the case of the British who group their skirmish companies into battalions, they fight in open order with their skirmish line thrown out ahead of them, whereas the French are using their Voltigeurs as a screen for each battalion.

There is some sources that suggest the French were doing the same thing as the British and grouping their volts into battalions, and I may start doing that as I start to do more stuff in the later Peninsular period.

The Skirmish battle will happen anywhere between 400 to 500 paces beyond the formed troops depending on if there are rifles available
