|The campaign map - the British objective is to take the town|
|French forces all start located in their fortified area. The British line up ready to enter on one of the two roads in the bottom left-hand corner of the map|
|Initial moves have the British entry and French pushing forward on the south of the river|
|Contact as British forces meet French forces - the first game now needs to be played.|
The first step was selecting the forces to be used. For this game both sides selected 12 units which were whittled down to 8 using playing cards.
|British force after selection using playing cards (see previous post on approach)|
|Terrain laid out and units placed ready for a game|
Note: the purpose behind not placing units on the flank squares of my 6x4 foot table when setting up is to allow sides to make flanking moves.
In the game's opening moves the French quickly took up position with their artillery piece on a hill to cover their right flank. The British moved around to attack the French left flank while the French moved forward and held their lines.
