Please see link for my refight of the Battle of Medina de Rio Seco, inspired by a recent article in Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy 112, using the Polemos General de Division rules and Baccus 6mm figures.

Oh so close, you had my hopes up for most of the time.

Ha! Well I think the Spanish are batting .500 overall in my refights of this particular battle…

Looks like a fabulous game. I think we have played this a few times as well. Nothing like 6mm and Polemos!

Spoiler alert!

The glorious Spanish let down by those fickle Brits . . .

Thanks Glenn and John. You have done this one before Glenn, I can remember it (I have seen the order of battle and the briefings, probably on the old Yahoo site).

It is always nice to see this battle and game. no matter how many times it happens. Great game for those having Spanish armies.

Exactly this. Did you do an article on it, a while back?
