The Battle of Vigo is a fictitious Peninsular battle with the French army under Napoleon pursuing the army of John Moore to Corunna. However the British Government have leant an ear to Arthur Wellesley and sent a relief force to the Peninsular. The infant Portuguese army is being mobilised in a ragged state to support Moore and the local Spanish Juntas have become inspired at the news, so march to assist John Moore. The culmination is a fantastic what if battle with plenty of reinforcement.
This battle will utilise In the Grand Manner rules and can facilitate up to ten players. The version of “In the Grand Manner” we use is a version that comes with a few amendments, specifically for melee, morale, the way skirmishers behave and fighting in woods. These amendments are supplied prior to the weekend upon request.
