The charge of the 'Black Hussars' - A 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 #10.

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 'Black Hussars'

The Brunswick Hussars, known as the 'Black Hussars' because of their uniforms, operated in the Spanish Levant, in coordination with British cavalry, in small coastal attacks. This scenario simulates one of those attacks.

On the tabletop there must be two gentle hills (no terrain effect), a wood (wood) and a cultivated field (crops), these elements are placed alternately by the players on the tabletop.
