|Initial deployment, with the Spanish occupying the town sector, and the French deployed on the right of the photo.|
|The French advance rapidly to try to force the Spanish from the town. They advance to try to push the Spanish from the heights.|
Initial French attacks are designed to remove the supports for the troops occupying the town.
|The attack on the heights|
|The Spanish initially stand firm on the heights. A French division (seen at the top of the photo) has marched around the flank and into the rear of the Spanish division defending the heights|
|Fierce cavalry melee|
|Vicious assaults on the hights|
|The Spanish division supporting the troops in the town is pushed back with heavy casualties.|
|The Spanish cavalry fares little better|
|However the British arrive|
|With some cavalry to try to defend the Anglo Spanish left|
|The Scots division arrives and immediately threatens the flank of the French division that has marched into the Spanish rear|
|The Scots reorganise after their successful assault on the French division|
|French pressure on the heights drives the Spanish away|
|The British cavalry holds up the flank|
|And British infantry advance to regain the supporting positions for the town|
The French advance has been blunted by the smaller Anglo-Spanish force. The French have failed to either cause enough casualties or take the town.
The day remains with the Anglo Spanish alliance. Despite their numerical superiority the French have not done enough to claim a victory.
This seemed to be a unbalanced game but it was enormous fun, and when the game was put into perspective with the relative strengths of the forces Adrian performed really well with the smaller Anglo Spanish force. And we had a huge amount of fun.
