Finally received the photographs that Mr. Ireland kindly took during our Liberators game on 28th December so here as promised is a short write-up of the action. Due to the small number of figures available we set up a scenario with a Royalist column being ambushed by a Gran Colombian/Venezuelan division.
Initial set up was:
Initial contact, the combined Royalist light companies move forward to engage the Venezuelan blocking force in the Hacienda.
In the centre of the field the combined Grenadiers and the Cantabria Regiment exchange fire.
In conclusion a very enjoyable game with plenty of suspense. Up until the entry of the Fernanado VII Husares the Patriots were carrying all before them, thereafter the fates turned against their cause as the boys in green and yellow massacred their merry way across the field of conflict.
This is the first time we've used cavalry in a Fire & Fury game, our previous forays with AWI being purely infantry affairs, and on this evidence are very handy when used aggresively.
I don't think we will look any further for suitable rules as these fit the bill admirably, plus we are both familiar with the set now which lends itself to a nice quick progression through the game.
Next game is pencilled in for 28th January when we will return to hallowed antiquity and the battle of Sellasia 222BC.
