Many years ago on the General De Brigade forum a couple of highly regarded Wargamers put together a scenario based on St Hillaire attacks on the Austrians at Essling. Cookie and I played it out in 28mm and had a whale of a time back in the Italian Club days of the club.
With the lads keen to play General D’Armee more I decided to put together a modified version for a quick game at the club.
|Austrian positions on the Old School club terrain|
|Austrian Chevaulegers - in this scenario their abilities to manoeuvre were limited|
|How good does my measuring stick look fellow Kaiserlicks?|
|I do like this battery|
|The French commence the assault on the Austrian left|
|Another view of the Austrian right. They would see very little action as the French|
Opposite struggled to move forward with limited ADC availability
|I have always enjoyed the club ever/stream sections|
It was a great game and without hoping into too detailed a breakdown the Austrians failed to stop the French crossing the stream and taking one of the two towns. It was a great game and very enjoyable.
