Interesting to see you back on a big table. I find that I always want to run bigger battles but if playing solo it can get to be hard work remembering where I am when I am administering it all.
I’m sure I have fought Talavera, but a very long time ago. I can’t remember what rules we used – may have been Quarrie it was that far back – I know I don’t remember finishing the game. From memory everyone stayed well away from the town and seemed to obsess over the cerro at the other end of the field, but I can’t for the life of me remember why.
I do remember the Spaniards didn’t run away when they fired their first volley on day one.
Thanks Guy. I don’t imagine I will be moving mainly to bigger games – on most days for most things, I genuinely prefer smaller stuff – but it is nice to have the option occasionally. I think this is maybe the third go at Talavera for me, I have done it with Polemos: Napoleonics before (I may have even posted up the scenario on the Yahoo! group…). I might get around to doing it with Horse, Foot & Guns and Blucher or Grande Armee at some point too.
