My good buddy Terry dropped by to help with testing out the deployment and balance of the Vimeiro battle the other day, and proved to me, that while challenging, the French can make a good go of taking the British position. We didn't play it to conclusion, but the initial turns showed me a few tweaks that will be needed, which was the goal. In the meantime, here are a few pictures of the action in classic black and white, befitting the old school armies:
|Vimeiro village as the assault develops.
|French battalions beginning the assault on Vimeiro Hill.
|The assault develops and the British flank is threatened.
|Run away! The British Artillery is over-run and they abandon the guns!
|A counter attack developing?
|The French frontal assault was costly!
|But will the flank fold under the pressure?
|Increasing the pressure on the British line.
|The reserve enters the fray, but are they just in time or too late...
