Firstly, terrain. Almost chose itself - had to include the brewery, finally found a use for the 28mm/oversize bandstand and country house also seemed to fit. Basic idea French driving up a major road running parallel to a river - which gives a useful boundary - while an infantry Brigade tries to slow them down.
Scenario starts with light cavalry leading the French, to be followed by the zouves then line infantry/heavy cavalry and artillery.
|Overview of the battlefield. The river on the far side of the road is the boundary - ignore everything you see on the far side!|
|The pavilion serves as a good Victorian folly in front of the country manor. It is defended by a line battalion Acting as a flank guard.|
|Brewery and road defended by by a fusilier battalion and line battalion. The road has been protected by some improvised barricades (sort of). The moulds in the background show my dilemma - I can set up for casting or gaming, not both.|
|The French cavalry make their appearance.|
