...we are back in the Peninsular War here in GHQ. Phil and I decided to have a rerun of our Proxy Peninsular War game to continue our attempts to get to grips with Soldiers of Napoleon, and hopefully to encourage Phil in progressing his French force of course. In this battle I will once again take command of the British forces while Phil will continue to command the French invaders. As is my wont, a photomontage to show the game unfolding ~
The French centre has collapsed! Things are looking bleak for their cause. Phil sensibly calls a halt in Turn 6 seeing little he can do to stem the British advance now. As time had almost run out on us and the British were ahead 14 Victory Points to the French's 7, we called it a win for the British.
There should be one final run through on 30/11/23 when Paul visits to try his hand at the French command, though with modified forces based on a better grasp of the system which has evolved over the previous run outs. Now though, it's back to the 9th (East) Norfolk Foot for the Crimean War project.
