In an alternative history, the FRENCH EMPEROR, NAPOLEON has decided NOT to attack RUSSIA, but instead send THE GRAND ARMEE to SPAIN, to end the threat from BRITAIN, and their alliance with the Kingdom of PORTUGAL.

To assist his invasion, Napoleon has ordered the KINGDOM OF PRUSSIA to supply a full corps of their army. They have traveled the many miles to arrive to the north of Portugal.

The DUKE OF WELLINGTON, knows that an enemy force is approaching from the north, but does not yet know their composition or size. He has sent a small, elite force of the ANGLO-PORTUGUESE army to probe the enemy force, and advise on the size of the threat bearing down on him….

I had signed for a FOGN 500 point tournament at Conquest 2021, but everyone else had worse things to do than spend time playing with model solders. So I got a normal 800 game vs Djando the Organizer that he very nicely offered to give me a game instead.

As I had expected to play a smaller game with a smaller army, I had not had time to finish basing everything, so I had to go for a very small army. The observant will note it's VERY small an army value of only 20.

Could an army of elite British Infantry be able to attack an army of lower elan and training when outnumbered 3:2 in Infantry, Calvary and Artillery?

Read the full battle report on MY BLOG to see the full story.

Not getting the battle report.
Interested as I only have Prussians and Russians ( and small units of British and Bavarian) so pit them against each other.

Sorry, what did you mean "not getting the battle report"? It's not loading? The site takes a few seconds due to all the pictures but it's loading ok for me.

If you mean "not getting the point of a non-historical battle", it was going to be a tournament of different armies fighting each other, but no one else showed up so I only got one larger game.

I'm happy for any feedback.
