Hello, I have just received To Assure My Dynasty, 1808 in Iberia, and (having only high-level knowledge of the Napoleonic Wars until now) have very much enjoyed reading through the various scenarios to learn more.  I have a couple of questions about the initial placements and orders of battle for three scenarios, each of which I'll post separately so that others can find the answers more easily.

The initial placement for the Spanish army at Molins de Rei on pg. 113 does not match the order of battle listed on the same page, instead matching the initial placement for the Spanish at Tudela on pg. 87.

What are the proper placements for the Spanish army at Molins de Rei?

The Spanish player should be allowed to setup as desired in the three Starting Zones so long as at least some Formations are placed in each zone. Historical accounts are very sketchy, we do know that Redding placed the bulk of his artillery at Starting Zone #1 and the hussars were placed in Starting Zone #3.
