Peut importe les équipes ! Si 4v4 on adapte ?
Genre scénarisé, nations imposées ?
Très bonne idée Melet.
Et pourquoi on ne referait pas la bataille de Talavera en 4vs4 ?
En attaque: 3 divisions françaises, (2 d'infanteries et 1 de cavalerie qui représenteraient le I Corps de Victor) + 1 IV corps (Sebastiani)
En défense: 2 divisions espagnoles (Cuesta) + 1 division Britannique + 1 corps expéditionnaire anglais (Wellesley)
à 21:00 !

There were three British (RA: Lawson, Sillery, Elliot) and two King's German Legion (KGL) batteries (Rettberg, Heise) with six guns apiece.
Cuesta's Spanish army of 35,000 was organized into five infantry and two cavalry divisions, plus about 30 artillery pieces, some 12lb guns.
