The arrival of the Carlist reinforcements was determined by each of us rolling two D6 the difference in the scores would be the move they arrived on with move six being the maximum, the score came out at five! could they hold out?
Alas no, after some early success in holding up the Isabelinos advance, when their enemy got closer the musketry got worse, turn four saw both Carlist battalions break, reaction scores of three and then two! The objectives for the Isabelinos was to hold the redoubt and the stables for one turn, the reinforcements would be unlikely get there in time to prevent this, so I conceded the game to the government forces ably commanded by Dave.
