A little more of an imagi-nations game this week as we pitted Austrians vs Russians. The Hapsburgs had a slightly larger infantry force, but with 25% inferior. They had a smaller cavalry brigade but 2/3 were superior.
Both sides were charged with capturing a road junction and so the small hamlet guarding it counted as 2 kills. We split the cavalry between the two flanks and again adopted 160mm frontage for the line infantry.
The Russians were a tough opponent for the Austrians despite their better shooting due to the higher morale and chance to rally wounds that superior motivation brings for the Tsar's men. This felt a less even contest than the French who benefit from new regime flexibility and higher initiative.
So this concludes our round of trial games - now to write a campaign. We're still torn between imagi-nations and doing 1812'ish.
Sounds like the Russians need to be focused down rather than spreading your damage out across multiple units.ReplyDelete
