Wellington is holding the main position with three Spanish divisions, and he has one British division in reserve. In 1813 he held the line with the Spanish alone.
For this game we have increased the morale value of the Spanish, but left their firing and skirmish value at class C. One quarter of the French army is of a similar low quality.
This is one of the few battles fought by infantry and artillery, the ground was not suitable for cavalry.
The Spanish were deployed behind the crest, with only their artillery visible to the enemy. So their gunners came under counter battery fire from the start, and the French gunners proved very lucky with their dice throw.
The Spanish infantry were easily out skirmished, and once one brigade broke the remainder soon followed.
The British reserve division held the line at Irun, but the battle was lost in the centre on on the allied right.
In retrospect I would increase the Spanish skirmish capacity to help them hold their own, but that would not be very historically correct.
British casualties were 3 infantry and 1 gunner
Spanish casualties were 21 infantry and 7 gunners
French casualties were 8 infantry and no gunners
