Off we went to the War of the Spanish Succession this week, as Tim put on another battle from the seemingly inexhaustible list of scenarios available for Table Battles. Malplaquet was an exceedingly hard fought engagement, as Villars attempted to raise the siege of Mons. Eugene and Marlborough had to work really hard to fend the French off and casualties were hideous.
Russell and I were Villars and Boufflers, and John and Simon were Marlborough and Eugene. For the first session Simon was unwell so John ran the Allies alone.
