We played the Combat at Sabugal last week, a scenario that I have been working on over the past month. It was an interesting project, trying to come up with a scenario that reflected the chaos and uncertainty of a fight that took place in the fog and the rain at the Rio Coa in Portugal in 1811.
Apologies for the cheesy fog effects!

Here's a link to the full battle report with lots of photos, There is also a link there to the scenario for those interested.

Nice. 1/72 plastic? What rules are you using?

Thanks, 79thPA. Yes, plastic 1/72, and the rules are Over the Hills, with a few tweaks to make this particular scenario work – including a fun picket element where the picket has to return to the French lines to activate the French. At least that was the idea, although in our game the French player dallied on his way back, but then the fog (rolled for each turn) lifted and the French were made aware of the Allied advance regardless. At the same time the 1/43rd discovered they were alone in front of Reynier's II Corps, rather than behind, which is where they had expected to be.
