Allow me to share with you some photos of a play (played with the house rules) with some people of our players' circle.

We replayed the battle of Albuera, which took place on May 16th, 1811 during the Peninsular war.


I hope you enjoy.

That wasn't a decisive battle…

"That wasn't a decisive battle…"

ah ah ah ! Merovee !!!
You call it indecisive ?!?

You did a great job destroying the allied cavalry but remember the whole Girard's division diseappeared in those ferocious fightings against Zayas Spaniards ! Not really indecisive in my opinion – and I was playing French too ! :)

Zayas and Mendizabal troops were in a very bad shape when my reserve brigade came to contact but before that Christophe did a pretty good job leading them. He even prematurely killed poor Girard !
As a French player I'm sorry to say it was something of a historical result !! :)

Ah Ah AH Franck !
Yes, of course I'm agree with you about this fact !

But… I also think that if we had pursued the battle, French would have got the upper hand favor in particular to the threat of their cavalry over the right allied's wing.
