The Prominent Hill
In this scenario both sides fought to control a hill-line that dominated a vital road junction. Russians / British were pitted against French.
Both sides seized the BUA closest to their deployment area but its was the Russians who made the most aggressive move pushing forward their Cuirassiers to try and slow-down the French advance. Unsupported though, the Russians cavalry were shot-up before being charged and routed by their French opposite numbers.
The French then brought up their Chasseurs and infantry in support before advancing on the main hill-line. The Chasseurs were painted by Stuart-the- Elder and completed / rebased by me,
In the decisive move of the game the French launched a combined assault against the Russian / British infantry, sweeping them from the hill and securing victory.
In the second scenario the French are established in a bridge-head and must attempt to break-out by seizing a ridgeline held by the Russians.
The French began with half their troops behind the river and very crowed deployment zone. To prevent the grater French numbers coming into effect the Russians attacked with cavalry on the flanks and infantry in the centre.
With the Russian attack halted the French vegan a counter-attack, but were unable to take the ridge-line before darkness fell.
