Re: The Road to Perdition II

Spanish Infantry Colours During War of Spanish Succession

Now I am a mere neophyte in this area, and mainly just a passing interest from reading the forum here, but it struck me that there is very little info on the uniforms and colours of the Spanish in Flanders given the main conflict in the era is named after them?

Re: Lundin Links Weekender Summer 2012

They did reach the crossroads with a cuirassier regiment and 2 dragoon regiments. Who promptly routed :) End of the game, the 95th rifles were just forward of the crossroads, a very shakey KGL battalion had rallied right on the crossroads, and the Camerons had rallied on the ridge on the 95th rifles...

Wellington survivng 3 rounds of close combat as he was helping the KGL rally.

Cheers

Re: Mondays Game

Thanks chaps. I'm still not sure on the ease with which a drilled French column can sweep a veteran British line battalion away. As has been previously discussed, some sort of -ve for trying to charge home against a steady British line might be appropriate, but the game was still enjoyable. Its prob...
