With a few players away this week we decided not to start the campaign proper but instead to play a game at about 2/3 the planned size. A village and a hill on the centre line provided the objectives for both sides to attack. It was Germans and French vs Russians and Prussians. All 4 players fielded 2 infantry and 1 cavalry brigade each.
|French infantry near the village
|Russian horse with infantry support
|Germans crest the rise
|Prussians are waiting for them
|Clash of heavies
|Prussians capture half of the village
|Russians assault the French
The game ended with the Russians / Prussians in control of the whole village (2 objectives) and the Germans holding the hill (1 objective). So a win for the Coalition forces on this occasion.
