|The Dutch defend the left flank whilst French columns attempt to flank|
them through the woods.
The scenario was to see a force of British, Danes and Dutch try and defend the Chateau on the outskirts of some important supply depots for the both armies.
|Bavarian Grenadiers sneak around the hedged field on the Danish right flank.|
|French cavalry mass in the centre from Steve's collection.|
|Dutch cavalry in reserve on their own right flank.|
|From the rear of the Franco-Bavarian lines the advance continues on however no dents have been made in the defenders line and time was of the essence in this scenario.|
|French advance on the left flank. Despite overwhelming odds in their favour the |
failure to manoeuvre in columns stole serious time from their advance.
|View from the Chateau as the Dutch guns look for some targets|
|British troops prepare for the French cavalry assault to come. Luckily the French |
came in piecemeal and allowed the foot to survive through some luck and grit!
|...but only after they also had to endure Bavarian cuirassiers attacking as well!|
The game was great fun with more familiarity with the rules being developed and the interest from other members of the club also being pricked which is always a good thing.
The figures were from the collections of Martin (Bavarians), Steve (French) and the Brits, Dutch and Danes were mine.
