Here's another Michael Hopper test scenario played a couple of weeks ago. See the previous Battlereport of Santarem for more details of his upcoming Peninsula War scenario books.
FRENCH FORCES (Marshal Soult)
BRITISH FORCES (General Moore)
This is an unusual scenario, in that a largely inferior French force (except for its artillery dominance) is attacking a fortified British force. The British are behind a low wall, in a valley with impassable hills to each flank. The British position also has many fields, orchard trees, and low walls etc, with a series of enclosures that make it unsuitable for cavalry operation.
Historically the French advanced and did a couple of brief probing attacks on the flanks, and then called the whole affair off, which seems wise. But let's see what happens if they are not so wise...
The hamlet of Nadela is worth 1 victory point to the side that holds it at the end of the game, and the French also get a victory point if they have a unit on the road in C3 (which is the supply route) at the end of the game. You also get victory points for breaking Brigades/Divisions, so neither side wants to risk too much here.
The game was played with 321 Fast Play Napoleonic Rules.
