Battle of Baltanas - Move 3

1000 to 1100

22 July 1813

Situation at the end of Move 3

British move closer to Baltanas

With poor quality cavalry the British post a brigade in square to support the artillery. The remainder of 3 corps prepare to advance on the town.

Hill directs his advance to his left to avoid the French artillery. The 12 pounders are playing havoc with the approaching infantry.

Rule Note

The British artillery have 6 pounder guns, the French 12 pounder. So the British have to move closer to the enemy to get in range. This leaves both them, and their infantry support, vunerable in the early stages of a battle.
