|Table set up|
|A slightly closer view of the table and Spencer Smith miniatures.|
|The French begin by launching an attack on their right flank|
|An Austrian cavalry charge eliminated a weakened French infantry unit|
|The French centre pushes up to support the flank which was losing momentum|
|In the centre Austrians grenadier units in the town were holding firm and taking a toll on the attackers.|
|At this stage the battle was at its height with reserves positioned to move into the line.|
|French attacks on the centre fail and the game momentum turns in the Austrian favour.|
|The battle was still a close run thing on the other flank.|
|The French break off their attack and retire from the field of battle.|
The house rules seem to be hanging together and providing an enjoyable solo game. Still a few more games will be required to help make sure the different situations that occur on a tabletop are covered. I had better write up the rules in their current state. As I will forget which of my many scribbles have been discarded if not done soon.
I must confess I am really enjoying play these Napoleonic games. The last time I played some Napoleonic games I would have been 12 years old with my yellow plastic Airfix armies stuck on bits of cardboard. Never thought I would ever have my own painted armies to game with.
