Battle of Tudela - Shako II - April 10

The Battle of Tudela will be Coming Soon to the Hangar (April 10)

This is a fight between 19,000 Spanish, and 30,000 French and Polish troops. Not surprising, the French/Polish alliance won, and it was a bloody slaughter! However, not all is lost, and it is a decent battle to wargame!

Another fine ManCave gaming production (John and Steven McCabe)!

The battle of Tudela, in 15mm at Carl's joint.

See you there!
