The game starts with all of the French commands on move orders and all of the allies on hold orders. Only the two commanders in chief can change these orders.
All French commands move forward. They are out of artillery range, so the allied commands do not move or fire.
Sherbrooke moves his reserve infantry closer to the pajar. The Spanish have 12 pounder guns and fire on the approaching enemy, but miss. The British have 6 pounder guns and are still out of range.
The allied artillery continue to fire on the approaching French. All of the enemy are now within artillery range, and one of the Spanish 12 pounders scores a hit.
