So with the pod system in operation my second game of the day was on the same table but against a new opponent Carole (of Hippolyta's Tiny Footsteps blog fame) who had dispatched Phil's Neapolitan army in her first game. Whilst the table was the same the scenario wasn't with Carole's British force tasked with capturing the anti-British Padre Ted from the Monastery of "la reliquia del santo con tres cojones" :D
Having suffered at the hands of Rob's carronade all morning I decided to employ my own artillery to blast the redcoats which meant the attack column block and grenadiers were out and a new force employed with two smaller formations of Fucilieri along with the Volteggiatori skirmishers...
The smaller group of Fucilieri deployed first and started marching towards the monastery to save Padre Ted.
There are three rounds of swordplay with both officers rolling 2D6 the results of which and difference in scores would dictate the subsequent rounds of combat. In the first role of our 'test duel' I managed to roll two 6's and Carole two 1's - the result being in the first round her commander dying with a yard of Italian steel through his heart! Shame it wasn't part of the game! :D
