|The village of Buenos Chichotas under attack from the French. The guerrillas had done a runner at this point.|
|The defending Spanish guerrillas (left) fighting it out over control of the church with the first French unit to enter the village.|
|What was left of the Spanish guerrilla band, now led by Father Ted Crillyjoz, retreating from the village in haste.|
|The Royal Artillery in action. It certainly played a significant role in the high French casualty rate.|
|Sharpe and his Chosen Men putting their Baker rifles to good use in the orchard on the left flank of the village. They were eventually forced to withdraw slightly to prevent being outflanked when the Spanish fled.|
|The French approaching the town early in the engagement.|
|Sharpe and Co. making their way into the town to support the Spanish. This superb village was scratch-built some years ago by Rodger Wood of 'Rebel Barracks' blog fame.|
|The dastardly French coming on 'in the same old style.' Superb Front Rank figures in marching order.|
|Sgt Obadiah Hakeswill leading a company on the left flank of the British line. This figure was converted by Rodger Wood.|
|Sharpe entering the village through the main gate, followed by Sgt Harper.|
|The Spanish guerrilla commander, El Moustachio, encouraging his men in the defence of the village. He would pay the ultimate price before the battle was over. A mixture of Front Rank and Brigade games figures.|
|The Spanish defending the buildings at the edge of the village. They put up a gallant fight, but realistically were never going to match the discipline and fire power of the French regulars.|
Thanks for taking a look.
Until next time!
