Rules: Black Powder (Warlord Games)
Scenario: Fighting retreat at El Perez (Spain 1809)
I made a few changes to the rules due to my use of 6mm figures.
I did away with counting figures and just count bases, 1-2 bases a tiny unit, 3-4 bases small units,
5-6 bases average size and 7-8 Large units.
I also reduced all measurements by33%, since I like most people don't have a 12' x 6' table.
I also made a minor change to the scenario, its recommended game length is "until it gets dark outside" I changed it to 8 turns.
Only had 4 players (Wim, his fiance Jo, Greg and Glenn) while I GMed, I think it was the perfect amount for such a small scenario. Greg played the Anglo-Portuguese
|French rupturing the British line at El Perez|
|Anglo-Portuguese racing for the bridge, one tiny French unit trying to hold them, unfortunately its been disordered by long range artillery fire|
|The garrison got shot again by artillery and this time rolled 4 or less on its break test, so its gone, replaced by a Tim Hortsn's coffee cup (it has tea inside)|
|Greg gloating, "You guys have no chance, just give up now"|
|The British have dispersed the garrison and are preparing to exit.|
|My new dice frames|
To win the British had to get 8 units off the table via the bridge, they just managed to do it. On turn 5 it looked like they were going to win easily, but then suffered a series of command rolls where they were unable to move at all or just a single move.
