The other afternoon 'S' called round and we played a game using my Garibaldi figures which had not been used yet , we decided to use 'Black Powder' rules and set up a encounter game . Here the Garibaldini forces move onto the table . I'm afraid my photographic coverage of the battle is a bit patchy as I got caught up in the action.
The Neapolitan forces march on .
The forces deploy.
The Neapolitan forces are a bit more sluggish in moving .
The battle was a close run thing , first a Neapolitan regiment routed soon followed by a Garibaldi Red Shirt unit.
On the other flank the Garibaldini skirmishers held off the enemy cavalry and finally routed them .
Things went wrong rapidly for Garibaldi as his Red Shirts were driven off and a suicidal charge by his cavalry was wiped out . A Neapolitan victory ! . A great little game , Black Powder is flexible enough to adapt to most periods and armies . This will inspire me to paint up the remaining figures for these armies. Oh and by the way 'S' won !.
