|The Initial Deployment|
Once again, like our last trial (see previous blog) we are just learning, so there wasn’t really meant to be a tactical problem, just a straight advance to contact and kick heads.
|Turn 3: The Polish cavalry move around the flank|
|Close up: Prussian Infantry|
Both sides didn't bother with any niceties but a general advance of infantry began the game. Richard and Nick also manoeuvred their cavalry for a charge through the center in support of their infantry. Ross, my CinC, had decided to swing our Polish cavalry ride in a wide arc to threaten the flank of the Prussians.
|The Infantry Advance|
|The two Prussian columns hit the Polish line: The rules seem to imply that I could only fire at one unit- we couldn't find anything to the contrary in the book!|
Both unit went in and my line was sent packing.
|The Prussian Guns with cavalry behind|
|By Turn 4 the Poles look like they will turn the Prussian Flank|
|Another attack of Lunacy- just like the last game- Prussian cavalry charging the Polish guns.....there wasn't too much left of Richard's beautifully painted Hussars after I rolled 12D6 at them!|
|Fire fight- and the Prussians are getting the upper hand|
In the end it there was no conclusive outcome as it was getting late and we had spent too much time chatting about the rules rather than playing them. They seem to work well and the Brothers may become converts.
