Following on from our previous Spanish Civil War game, I decided on a Nationalist counter attack on the bridge captured by the Republicans in our last game, however this time we would use Rapid Fire with Mark Hannams SCW supplement.
To add a bit of uncertainty I decided to use Bolt Action order dice to determine which side could me a unit, rather than the IGUGO method of the rules, to spice it up further I added a red dice, when this was drawn the next dice out was ignored, this meant that you could not be sure of moving all your units each turn.
The Republicans had the following to defend the bridge
One Battalion of International Brigade with support from an anti-tank gun and two companies of militia.
The attacking Nationalists had a battalion of Carlist militia supported by two companies of Falange and a company of Legion and a PZ1.

|This Diverts A Company Of Carlists From Their Flanking Move|
|Meanwhile The Falange Advance On The Left|
|The Republican ATG Draws A Bead On The Pz1|
|The Second Shell Hits Home|
|Anarchist Militia Move To Protect The Flank, While The Other Takes Up Position In The Church|
|Decimated by Flanking Fire From the Church The Carlists Engage The Enemy In The Orchard|
|The IB Attacking Force, Job Done, Regroups At The Bridge|
|The Falange Begin Their Attack, But Nationalist Morale Is Crumbling Which Will See Them Soon Rout|
The Nationalists were rather taken aback by the Republican attack and let it dictate their actions from there on. The dice gods favoured the Republicans bold move and further added to the Nationalist woes by deserting them, giving the Republicans (Dave) a deserved victory.
