The Republican army has taken control of the village of Passo de Montanha which is situated in the important border crossing of the Burrito Mountains and awaits reinforcements to consolidate its hold on the position. Their force is divided into a heavy machine gun on the left, half of the infantry unit in the village and the other half with the light machine gun in an emplacement on the right.
They have been joined by an artillery unit, laboriously moved up onto the commanding heights of the Morro das Lhamas, on which the Major of the Regimento de Renome da Revolucao has set up his HQ.
Hoping to reclaim this strategic site the Neuvo Rico Army have sent a force from the Torta Cubana Regiment to attack the position before the Republican forces can be reinforced.
The Nuevo Rico Commander has taken over the Casa da Nobreza as his HQ and deployed a battery of artillery close to hand to bombard the enemy positions.
Here we see the table set out for the forthcoming game. The Nuevo Rico force nearest the camera and the Republica del los Cocos force holding the pass and village. Battle report to follow shortly I hope .
