The Charge of the 13e Cuirassiers - Capitan Scenario

CAPITÁN is a selection of rules designed to play battles between small groups of troops, such as advance recognition, convoy escort, guerrilla actions, raids on small towns, border posts, incursions into enemy territory, actions against advanced camps, and all those situations where specific tasks were assigned to a few troops of their units.

This is a translation of Capitan Scenario Pack - Scenario #14.

Capitan scenarios are designed to be played on 60cm square game board, adjust as necessary if using a larger game board. To designate the location of troops and terrain in a scenario the game board is divided into four quadrants; NorthWest(1), NorthEast(2), SouthWest(3), South East(4). (For more details see Scenarios)
The Charge of the 13e Cuirassiers
This scenario represents part of the Battle of Margalef which was covered in detail on this blog earlier.

The 13e Regiment of Cuirassiers covered themselves in glory at the battle of the Plain of Margalef (Tarragona), where they charged alone and after a brutal fight put to flight the avant-garde of O'Donnell's army.

Basically the terrain is flat, place a gentle hill (no terrain effect) in quadrant 1 and some scattered houses, with cultivated fields (crops) and a road that runs north to south.

1 command unit Commandant Robichon 13e Cuirassiers
1 unit Cavalry 13e Cuirassiers (400 points)
1 unit Cavalry 13e Cuirassiers (400 points)

1 command unit Mayor Ruiz Regiment Del Guadalajara
1 unit Grenadiers Regiment Del Guadalajara (300 points)
1 unit Infantry Regiment Del Guadalajara (300 points)
1 unit Infantry Regiment Del Voluntarios De Barcelona (200 points)
1 unit Cavalry Regiment Del Infante (250 points)

Anywhere in quadrant 1

Anywhere in quadrant 4, except the cavalry does not arrive until the third turn in the southeast, allies place first.

The Cuirassiers and their command can use all their special skills at no cost.
