I was expecting his flank march to arrive on my side of the board, so I chose an extremely defensive artillery right angle formation. All it did was leave one battery of artillery flapping in the breeze. I had to leave the limbers and horses behind so that I could squeeze my army into the available space.
In the end I conceded as I failed to carry the charge into the artillery battery, and the french were is a better position to carry the battle than I. Good game though.
|Andrew looking rather pleased with his deployment.|
|The majority of my army hemmed into a defensive corner.|
|The real estate Landwhere with my Dragoons and Hussars.|
|The french holding the "large stone building".|
|Not much on the table I thought, "oh dear he must be flank marching".|
|A race to leave the pinched nerve and a race for the bridge.|
|Cavalry on the move, Landwhere advancing.|
|french waiting their time and for the rest of them to turn up.|
|Dragoons race across the table, eager to clash with the artillery.|
|Still trying to get into a better position. french almost at the bridge.|
|Advancing through the woods. french artillery rather accurate.|
|Prussians on the move.|
|Hussars backing up the Dragoons in the inevitable collapse.|
|Dragoons stay steady despite the stray round of musketry.|
|Prussians taking up positions. Dragoons halted by musketry.|
|Landwhere advancing beyond the real estate!|
|french cavalry hit the Dragoons. Melee ensues.|
|Landwhere still advancing.|
|Still buggering around to get into a better formation.|
|french cavalry chased off, Dragoons in hot pursuit. Looks nice and open.|
|Damn the rest of the french army arrive, |
Dragoons chase french cavalry off the table and follow in turn.
|Prussian column sent off to take building.|
|All that french have arrived, not looking good.|
|Andrew pointing the finger of, "you want to charge into the building?"|
|Prussians bravely charging, but unable to better their position.|
|Landwhere still in the game!?|
|Engagment, but not looking good for the Prussians.|
|Last bound as I conceded the game. |
Andrew forms squares to butcher my Dragoons if the return.
My Hussars and infantry fail to complete their charge.
