The Bridge at Bazile

A British brigade looks on as the Franco-Bavarians advance

A very quick post with a few happy snaps of the game we played last night set in Northern Germany.  The scenario, which we played with Black Powder and the supplement "The Last Argument of Kings", involved 600 points of Anglo-Dutch defending a vital bridge across the river from 1000 points of Franco-Bavarian troops.

Dutch battalions prepare to volley their French enemy.

On the Dutch right flank the French push forward aggressively

The flank is looking slightly open isn't it?

"Onward mon amie to victory!"

It was a great fun game which ended with the Anglo-Dutch losing their flanking brigades to poor morale and the 2nd Brigade of Dutch being forced to withdraw.  The French will be drinking mosel in the manors of Bazile this very night!

Thanks for a great game Steve and Marty!
