    The battle of Rolica makes for an interesting scenario, testing the players skill to conduct a fighting withdrawal aiming to delay and cause casualties without becoming embroiled in an unwinnable overwhelming all out assault.

    Of course the Anglo-Portuguese are looking to achieve the opposite whilst also avoiding unnecessary casualties

    The order issuing process in OTH adds further to the potential and we tested the idea in this, the latest of our series of OTH scenario games

    What a terrific layout! I love the border cropping on that table for some reason. My obsessive nature hates overlapping scenery on the edges of things.

    Yes, it does look nice.  Another scenario to try out.

    I am impressed with how these rules work in JJ’s games.

    Hi chaps, thank you.

    I too am slightly obsessive and I need to see where the edge of a scenario ends. We were doing something similar on the Talavera table to indicate the specific part of the battle we were playing.

    The rules play very well and are very straight-forward and we are enjoying getting very familiar with them, which means our scenario testing is getting quicker with each game; and we are better able to assess now how things will play often without having to go through the whole scenario, just being able to focus on specific parts. For me that’s a good sign of a set of well crafted rules.
