Spanish Urban Militia 1808

Easily the worst troops fielded by Spain in the Napoleonic Wars

The Urban Militia. I used a mix bag of spare 15/18mm figures I had left over to use them up and create enough stands to use in any garrison actions I might want to do.

Roll Call DBMM Themes

DBMM at Roll Call Themes

Roll Call for DBMM have adopted new theme split my dates after seeing it work in the Italian DBMM Circuit. I dont play DBMM but the date split looks interesting.

2017. Period 1 – 3000BC to 500BC (the Chariot era)
2018. Period 2 – 500BC to 25BC (High Classical)
2019. Period 3 – 25BC to 476AD (Imperial Rome)
2020. Period 4 – 476AD to 1071AD (the Dark Ages)

2021. Period 5 – 1071AD to 1321AD (Feudal period)
2016. Period 6 – 1321AD to 1515AD (High Medieval)

ROLL CALL 2015 DBM Results

The full DBM results for each round & final scores.

Pictures to follow once I have sorted through them along with a brief narrative of my four games.

Though it can be neatly summed up as a weekend of unreliable allies until game 4.

My army list for the weekend is at the end past the pictures.

Well done to John Vaughan for a well deserved win and to the BHGS for organising it.

Round 1 - My Game - Invader 20-12 to me
2 unreliable allies which came on line at the same time but too late to bring me victory.








Some of the other games - Round 1



 


 


Round 2 - My Game - Invader 18-14 to me
Yet again 2 unreliable allies of which the LPIA never came on side!









Some of the other games - Round 2





Round 3 - My Game - Invader 17-15 to me
Yet again the LPIA ally was unreliable, but eventually came on side.






Some of the other games - Round 3




Round 4 - My Game - Invader Yet Again! 16-16 Draw
At least the allies were reliable this time.
The best game of the weekend for me.







Some of the other games - Round 4
Unfortunately only had time to get a single picture as I was busy.
