The Anarchists got three ten man squads, a Type 10 armoured truck with a turret mounted machine gun, transported on board were four Dinamiteros.
We would use the BG/BA/CoC concoction again, one D6 would be thrown for orders the Carlist force adding one for their Officer, the Anarchists would have to dice for theirs, if a 5 or 6 was rolled then they would add 1 for their officers influence.
If the truck left the road it would bog down on anything but a six, both sides had bandaras, if a squad was within 5” it could re-roll a failed rally test, the Requettes also had a religious icon which had the same effect but would also enable a squad within 5” to re-roll a failed morale test as well. The Dinamiteros if assaulting could roll two dice for their grenades and use the higher score .
The Requettes started with three units on table, this was decided by rolling a D3. The title of the post will no doubt give you a clue to how the game went, despite cover a plenty it could no compensate for the uncanny amount of fives and sixes rolled by each side during the game. Both sides decided to keep in the cover of their respective walls, the truck attempted to move off road and got bogged down, both sides squads got pinned and then unpinned in turn, but the superiority of numbers finally told and the Requettes morale was reduced to 0 and the surviving icon bearer and officer fled for their lives. The Republican winning streak shows no sign of abating.

I have finally commenced painting the Moroccan Regulares, perhaps these will tip the balance in the new year.
All that remains is to wish you all...………………………….
