Don Byklos popped over to OHQ today for a First Carlist War game using Black Powder rules, his force was tasked with securing the bridge over the Rio Rawnsla. There to attempt to thwart his efforts was a Carlist force of two battalions and an artillery battery, with the promise of a further three battalions and a few cavalry squadrons to arrive around turn six.
It was obvious to the Don that he needed to advance rapidly and sweep aside the defending Carlists whilst he had superior numbers.
