I also had time to get a game in today. I would use a ONE HOUR WARGAME scenario (number 2) with modified Memoir of Battle rules. As the game was based on the first Anglo-Boer War, I decided that infantry would only move one, but could also fire after moving.
This game has the objective of taking two terrain features, a hill and a crossroad. The Red army (the British Army) has three infantry units, one skirmisher unit, and two cavalry units. The Blue army (Boers) has three infantry, two artillery, and one cavalry units.
|The British army is at the top of the picture, the Boers on the bottom. The goal of the battle is to hold the hill and crossroads.|
|End of the first move. The British have seized the hill and has their Skirmishers (Highlanders) advancing rapidly towards the crossroads with cavalry support. The Boers move their cavalry towards the center to counter any cavalry attack.|
|End of turn two.|
|Turn 3; British move. The red lancers attack the Boer infantry on the road, trying to make them retreat. The two infantry units on the hill come down to engage the guns.|
|The Boer cavalry and infantry tries to force back the lancers. The Boer artillery forces both infantry units to fall back to the hill.|
|The Red lancers kill two of the Boer cavalry. The Highlanders capture the crossroads. The Blue lancers attack one of the batteries.|
|Two Boer infantry units tries to recapture the crossroads, but the Highlanders hold fast. The Boer artillery fires canister at the Blue lancers, with devastating results.|
|Turn 5. The Red lancers force the Boer cavalry off the field. The Blue lancers eliminate one Boer gun.|
|The Boer infantry takes the crossroads, forcing the Highlanders to retreat. The last Boer gun tries to hit the Blue lancers, with no success. The Boer infantry on the left pushes towards the hill.|
|Turn 6. The British hits the Boers from three sides at the crossroads. Both infantry units at the hill attack the solitary Boer unit. The Blue lancers try but fail to take the gun.|
|The only success for the Boers is to finally eliminate the Highlanders.|
