This is nothing to do with Córdoba but it sounds suitably Spanish. This was a fictitious engagement set in the peninsular involving French and Spanish with a small British contingent. The Spanish force supplied by John Glass, consisted of 2 small brigades of Infantry and a light cavalry brigade. Bill Gilchrist supplied and commanded an attached British Infantry Brigade. The French consisted of one large Infantry Brigade and a Cavalry Brigade, I commanded the cavalry while Bart had the infantry.
The Spanish now set about reducing the defenders of the village using artillery. In several rounds of fire the French battalion on the right in the picture broke and routed from the field. The Spaniards did not have a unit that was able to exploit this so it looked set for the French reserve to reoccupy the village. Well how looks can be deceptive in a comedy of dice the next few turns both sides failed command rolls to occupy the village
On the Spanish side things were not much better for the allies, having received reinforcements they had looked to push into the town but the dice drama was not over as they stalled in front of the French artillery. Finally the french resere made it into the village and the battle was as good as over.
It was a close run thing, it really came down to the race into the buildings. Once the French won that it would have needed a concerted effort to get them out.
You may have wondered what happened to the cavalry combat well not much after the first few rounds both sides were blown and really had no impact on the rest of the game.
