French had the luxury of time in this scenario, and methodically approached the British position, driving them back to the ridge. Careful moving to push the British out of position, and a British cavalry charge into a First Strike saw the French 1-0, with a few British cripples to the rear. An unfortunate Elan roll lost a LN, but killed the Brit artillery (2-1). Brits closed around the cavalry, 2-2.

The Centre pushed back & forth, and the 2nd French cavalry moved up, and cleaned up a weakened LT, Crauford, and a Brit LN (5-2). With few other options, the Grande Maneuver was used to bring up the French infantry to conduct the coupe de grace with the Cold Steel card. The unfortunate LN under Simon couldn't stand the response,(5-3), but the other killed off the Portuguese LN & LT for a 7-3 win.

British dice were poor, for a change.

French 7 +1 card disparity = 8
Brits 3
