Battle of Valladolid - Move 7

1400 to 1500

19 July 1813

Situation at the end of Move 7

1st British corps have retreated out of range of the French guns, so the attack has failed.

On the opposite flank both sides have casualties and either side could break.

1st British corps have retreated out of range, and the French corps are on Hold orders.

Wellington’s attack on Valladolid has failed.

The British artillery have fired on the French square, and missed again (third time). The Rifles have rallied, but are unable to skirmish this move. One good, or bad, dice could make all the difference on this flank

Rule Note

The British have been particularly unlucky with their dice in this game.

First the 4th corps have consistently rolled low for their Command Points, so the whole advance has been slow.

Then their artillery have only hit the square once, and despite three casualties the infantry made their morale.

Finally the elite rifle brigade have failed their morale due to a roll of one on D6.

It all makes for an interesting game!
