It also seemed a good time to try out my reduced table size so I have roped off a 5x6 area to play on.

The scenario involves 2 advance guards each tasked with controlling the crossings over the Hard River. Each side has 1 light cavalry regiment, 1 irregular or militia light infantry unit and 2 regiments of infantry. For more details see Battlegames Issue 24.

More to follow in a few days.
