Christino Dave AKA Don Byklos achieved victory in turn six, my Carlists letting them blithely past their flank whilst engaged by the other units. On my past form with the dice I should not have put much store in my reinforcements arriving, yes of course they did not appear. Tiredness or bad generalship? I will let the pictures describe the sorry state of events and you can decide.
|Christinos Prepare To Advance|
|Carlist Skirmishers Advance Through Alegria|
|Christino Columns Advance|
|Their Foes Advance In Turn|
|Both Sides Skirmishers Engage|
|Carlist Cavalry Advance To Pin The Christino Flank, But Who Is Pinning Who?|
|Christino Columns Get In Close|
|The Second Christino Unit Prepares To Exit The Table, Where Are The Carlists?|
|Well This Lot Are Pinned By Half Their Number, Apparantly Relying On The None Appearing Reinforcements To Mop Up The Other Flank|
All in all a splendid little game, figures by Perry Miniatures, Buildings by Empress and Grand Manner, Walls The Last Valley, Trees K&M and The Last Valley. Pop over to Dave's blog, click the Tales From GHQ link to see some picsw of the splendid games at this years Claymore.
Next weeks game will be over at GHQ, a 1914 game to mark the start of that terrible four year conflict.
