French left

The French are taking heavy casualties

Two infantry brigades are in rout and a further three are shaken

Abbe continues to fight to take Villafranque

Darricau has taken too many casualties to advance any further

Game Notes

Both armies have taken heavy casualties, and have lost brigades due to poor morale

At this stage any loss of morale can have a dramatic effect

If one brigade routs, any supports within 4” must also test morale.

When most brigades have at least one casualty, this can lead to further routs

The rules used can be found at
