While the historical outcome was a decisive British victory, both armies were evenly matched, with the British having a slight advantage in infantry while the French had a tad more in calvary and artillery. ESR also simulates the tactical doctrinal differences nicely with the French having a smaller number of large formations while the British having a lot more smaller more flexible units that done have as much staying power but are very flexible to use.
The French are entering the board from the lower right side.
Here's a hint for ESR, which bases died roll on 2 D6's - DONT ROLL TWO ONES. Something always really bad happens.
Given how much we like the ESR tules set, I'll be making proper ones to use in the next game.
This is the third time I put on an ESR game at the club and I must say the rules are a lot of fun and provide a very good game. This one could have gone either way, but a rare French victory in the Peninsula isn't that bad of a thing...
