    Last Saturday the New Buckenham Historical Wargammers refought the afternoon attack by the french at the Battle of Talavera in 1809. The figures were 28mm and the rule set used was Black Powder to 2/3 ranges.

    To make things manageable the french regiments were reduced to two battalions each, except where they were a single regiment brigade, and stats adjusted to compensate. We lack full units in correct period uniforms so post 1812 made up a large portion of the forces as well as some interlopers as spanish line cavalry.

    We decided the limits of the battlefield would be the artillery redoubt to the south and the hills of Sierra de Segurilla to the north.

    The result, due to some poor dice rolling, not very historical. The spanish held on doggedly on both flanks while the british centre was pierced by french column and dragoons so no title for Wellesley this time.

    A personal thanks from me to carojon for the pointers etc.

    Same again next year with more Spanish and correct uniforms, we hope.


    Look at all those models!
    That is what I like about the period.

    Thanks for sharing, good first post!
