The 28mm Classroom, Part the Third

Our third day of gaming an anonymous battle in Napoleonic Spain saw the tide turn in favor of the French.

The British Hussars get caught in the rear by French light cavalry without a chance to react.  Despite the huge tactical disadvantage, the Hussars seem to lead a charmed existence and win the melee.

Zack and Carter talk tactics.

French dragoons race past a British square and put Spanish infantry to flight.  Accumulated casualties leave the unit shaken, however, and the wind up behind Anglo-Allied lines without the elan to race back home.

A brigade of British infantry routs under withering French infantry and artillery fire.  

Those crazy British Hussars go after French artillery.  By now, however, the French are able to respond with both infantry and cavalry.

French cavalry and guards smash into what remains of the British line.

Don't move. Don't look away. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead...
