Afternoon all! Not long now until I finally have a game refighting the Battle of Medina De Rioseco in 1808.
I’ve spent most of the afternoon preparing forces for the refight this weekend. All the forces are divided up in their boxes and ready to go.
I also realised that the Spanish could have done with one or two extra skirmish bases so I rushed some out this afternoon from my spares box and I don’t think they look too bad. What do you think?
The Order of Battle that I’ve been using is from the ESR Campaign Guide, “To assure my dynasty” from the Wargames Company
This is the first edition and they’ve recently released a 2nd edition which you can buy from Caliver Books in the UK – it looks good, and I will get it when I have the time.
The Order of Battle we will be using is available on the link below – the ratings used are for our in-house Napoleonic wargames rules. As a general rule, a 6 is the best rating you can get.
There are some other Orders of Battle out there which show a slight variation in the unit lists – I’ve listed a few below for those who are interested
