Battle of Baltanas - Move 5

1200 to 1300

22 July 1813

Situation at the end of Move 3

Both British corps are now on Engage orders and move closer to Baltanas to skirmish the garrison.

French reinforcements might just be in time to support the garrison.

On the left Hill moves two infantry brigades into volley fire range, but only one can fire. They win the firefight, though with casualties, and force the French line to withdraw Shaken

On the right Picton moves his heavy cavalry forward to protect the two infantry brigades who are about to engage the garrison.

Rule Note

On Engage orders infantry can either skirmish or volley fire. The decision will depend on whether they are better at either than their enemy. They also have to move much closer to the enemy to volley fire.

The British have had a poor dice throw, so although they outnumber the French they can only fire with one brigade.
