By a wonderful bit of serendipity I ‘met’ John from the SWAG courtesy of the Hat Forum. Discovering that we were wargaming ‘neighbours’ we said the usual, “we must get together for a game sometime.” After a few failed attempts and meeting in person, we committed to this weekend game of the Battle of Talavera.
My wargaming ‘equipment’ was all that ANF HQ, where our game of the Battle of Bautzen was still in play, so I picked up some new D10 dice from Tactics. Mike assured me that they were guaranteed lucky dice and would roll any number between 0 and 9. More on them later.
Above and below: Ruffin’s men followed their attack of the night before and once more attacked up the Cero de Medellin. The flanking movement by Beaumont and Villatte's troops was making good progress.
We really appreciated being able to be part of such a great looking, well planned and enjoyable game, so a big thanks to the Serpentine boys; John, Mitch, Neil (and Dave) for allowing us to join them.
