After our trips away it was back to gaming here at OHQ, a First Carlist War game using Black Powder rules.
After an initial falter the Isabelino attack got underway where has the Carlist response never really started after one and half hours the Carlist force was broken the high ground was taken by the forces of the crown.
|The Isabelino Infantry Brigade finally gets underway.|
|The Carlist volunteers await the attack while reinforcements advance on their flank, well some of them.|
|Isabelino cavalry and horse artillery guard the flank.|
|The Carlists on the hill come under heavy fire.|
|Over on their left the their support also come under fire from both front and flank.|
|The British Auxiliary Legion brigade come up in support.|
|The Brigade commander attempts to restore the situation, follow me !|
|Several Carlist battalions are now shaken.|
|Meanwhile the Carlist Cavalry remain inactive only having orders to hold the culvert.|
|Not knowing this the Isabelino cavalry stand off the other side not wishing to get caught in the narrow confines of the culvert.|
