Craufurd's Light Brigade against 'les légeres' - 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 #9.

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)
Craufurd's Light Brigade against 'les légeres'

Hypothetical scenario in which several units of General 'Black Bob' Craufurd's famous Light Brigade face off against their French counterparts.

On the tabletop there is a hill(steep hill), a dense forest(heavy wood), cultivated land(crops) and a group of houses(stone house, 5pts of toughness), these elements are placed alternately by players.

300 points of command units.
1 unit 3e Regiment d'Infanterie Léger (300 points).
1 unit Voltiguer 2e Regiment de Nassau(300 points).
1 unit Carbinier 3e Regiment Grand Duchy of Warsaw(300 points).
1 unit Voltigeur 88e Regiment d'Infanterie de Ligne (300 points).

300 points of command units.
1 unit 95th Rifles (300 points)
1 unit Brunswick Oels Jäger (300 points)
1 unit 52nd Oxfordshire Regiment(300 points)
1 unit 1st Portuguese Caçadores (300 points)

Anywhere in quadrant 1.

Anywhere in the quadrant 4.

Units are deployed on the table based on the results of the initiative throws, with the loser placing a unit and so on. No unit maybe placed within charging distance of any enemy unit.
