Last Sunday afternoon at New Buckenham Historical Wargamers I ran a game of Black Powder Napoleonic using a scenario that I had created and evolved since it's first outing in 2015.

The Scenario is fictitious and loosely based on some of the actions fought along the Portuguese Spanish border around 1810 and 1811.
The British have a division watching a portion of the Portuguese/Spanish border, One picquet watching a bridge in a small town, that is the only known crossing point of a river for miles, observes a French Division approaching from the direction of Fuente de Oņoro. After feeding this information back to Viscount Wellington the British commander is ordered to concentrate his division and prevent the French from seizing this vital river crossing.
The French have a division probing allied defences along the border prior to a planned invasion of Portugal. They are tasked with advancing on the town and capturing the bridge and if possible driving the British picquet off. If successful they are to report to the Marshall so that he may utilise the crossing to continue the advance on Almeida.

Well, the person doing the commission does great work. I see so many bright blue streams and rivers in games. Don't people ever look at real ones … they aren't blue!

The roads look very realistic also … did the same person do them?
