Napoleonic Scenario Game Dec 6th 2009

The Prussians head for the hills

Uhlands strike a French Square

The French surge onto the bridgehead

The Russian 3rd Division braces for the inevitable

French Dragoons strike the 2nd Silesian in Square

Ion and I fought a scenario out of the wargames scenarios book. The Scenario involved the French trying to break out of a bridgehead while the Allies (Prussian and Russians) tried to force the French back over the river.

I favoured my luck slightly and sent the Allied flanks into attack instantly however the 2 french 12pdrs on the banks soon had my wings in disarray. What progressed from there was an extremely blood thirsty slug fest that eventually saw the allies being defeated.
