I struggle sometimes to find the enthusiasm to play at times. Being constantly flogged can really affect your capacity to think you can win. It seems to be a factor that once I start to lose my whole outlook changes, I never seem to get the die rolls I need, my troops never seem to be in the right place and position as my opponent. It's almost as though I inflict misfortune and depression on my game.
Here are some photos of the night with some commentary to go with it.
One day I may even know what it is to be a good player.
|The Prussian line up. Board was very open on my side.|
|The french line up.|
|Right flank advancing. My artillery was more effective than expected.|
|Left flank responding to advancing french. Skirmishers deployed.|
|Hussars advancing. Lancers in reserve for the inevitable rout.|
|Right flank continues to advance.|
|Oddly enough my cavalry fought on for two bounds before fleeing.|
|Dragoons ready to charge/receive charge.|
|Lancers now engaging french hussars (after mine were destroyed).|
|Right flank continues to push ahead.|
|Dragoons engage but fail due to being lower quality to french.|
|3 battalions chasing one french. 2 battalions fleeing cavalry.|
|french burst through the artillery, destroying them.|
