William's centre and left
|The extreme French right, with the elite class Picardie regt on the far left.|
|In the initial setup we both threw for our commander ability, Richard was Skilful while I was Competent, I did originally throw a Plodder, but we changed it so we could have a reasonably balanced game.|
|The Allies advance to the farm, while the French hide behind the hedge (and Fran was nowhere to be seen, sorry an in-group joke!!)|
|Richard's lovely painted horse advancing.|
|Princess Anne's Horse, the Guard te Paard and in the background |
Waldeck's Horse all advance
|Another shot of the French Horse.|
|I threw well here and could move all my troops, so boldly charged two squadrons onto the French Horse, who I believe were the Musketeers of the Guard Royal Eccosse. (Rich has painted a lot of guard!!)|
|French Infantry Second battalion - One of these must be the raw unit??|
|After my perhaps over confident charge, Rich moved a Horse unit ready to move in to attack if his |
Scots Horse survived the Guards charge.
|And here's a close up.|

|My left of the battle field. Richard threw well in the movement...I didn't!! Mt raw unit can be seen |
at the bottom of the photo -The Scots Fuzillers.
|The middle and right of the above pic, I've manoeuvred inf regt Prince George of Heesen-Darmstadt, to get a fire on the Royal Eccosse Horse who are in forced pursuit.|
|The right of the field, the second Guard te Paard and the 2nd Royal Eccosse have charged|
each other, the +6 dice for the French Horse is a real killer!!!

|Light faded and the enemy broke of for tea and crumpets.|
We both really enjoyed the game, hopefully very soon we'll have another bash!! We both realised that the what we thought was a small game wasn't. The first 3 turns wizzes along, but once melee ensued it slowed down quite a bit. There were several things (like I already mentioned) that we were unclear of, Richard wrote some questions down to send to the League of Augsberg Fighting Talk forum, unfortunately, I left them at Richards, he said he'll join up the forum and put the questions to Barry and the other guys from the site. So hopefully we'll clear them things up before the next game.
