|"Oh Saxe-Weimar where were you when I needed you most?"|
For your information GdA was written by David Brown, he of General De Brigade fame amongst many systems, and they are an absolutely cracking set of Napoleonic rules!
|The French in the centre await their fate.|
|Unformed but still on the field|
|The French wish to follow up however they roll a 1 and are Hesitant...|
|With all this awaiting them.|
|The French Brigade has a unit disperse and then fails the Falter test and retires, taking the guns with them.|
|This Brunswick Artillery commander, perhaps Moll himself, decides that the guns facing the threatening|
French heavies may be a prudent tactical decision.
|However the Cuirassiers can only remain hesitant for so long...|
|...and the Brave Black Brunswick Hussars luck finally runs out.|
|However the French Heavy Cavalry Commander kept the pressure on and charged the Brunswick Uhlans.|
|Whilst the Brunswick Horse artillery keep the other regiment of French at bay.|
|The Uhlans prevail, forcing the Cuirassiers to retreat|
|Despite the Uhlan victory the routing unit of Brunswick Hussars force a falter test on the brigade. DISASTER - a |
Sauve Qui Peut result forces major retirements.
|A massive hole in the allied left appears and the reserve Brunswick Brigade off table is nowhere to be seen.|
|Next on the workbench will be some cotton wool screens to represent a unit losing fire discipline and |
effectiveness on the field. Those tissues look so, so wrong!
|In case you were wondering, the Nassau Brigade, who remained hesitant for the majority of the first half of the|
fighting last time are...well...consistent!
|On the Allied right the Dutch-Belgian cavalry have gotten onto the front foot/hoof and charged their French|
light cavalry opponents in a battle for the hill.
|A differing view of the action.|
|Having less confidence than their Cavalry companions, the French form square with two battalions whilst|
the French battery manhandles forward to take some shots at the now isolated brigade of Kempt.
|Whilst back on the French right the Young Guard arrive...|
|...feeling pretty good about what they see before them.|
So the situation has changed dramatically in a few short turns. The allies have lost a brigade along with their valuable Aide De Camp. The British of Pack are in retreat and the lads are somewhat isolated up front and the Brunswick light brigade of infantry are pinned down by cuirassiers and heavy artillery pounding upon their squares.
What will unfold?
