French vs Austria, Napoleonic AAR
Big thanks to Tobias (http://tobbesfow.blogspot.se/) for wanting to try out his Austrians.
When we calculated together what he could muster we ended up with a 175pts army and with that points I choose opposition army.
Its actually my first time using points in Black Powder and it worked out fine.
The Cavalry brigade was commanded by a Command 7 officer and two Hussar regiments, one upgraded to veterans.
The Infantry brigade was commanded by a Command 7 officer and two line regiments one was upgraded to veterans and tough fighter.
The Line infantry was ganging up on the Landwehr trying to make an impact what should be his weakest part of his army. The plan was to start somewhere.
The line shoots at his Grenadiers while I assault the other unit in the side. Nice one.
Its feel next to impossible to charge infantry that havn´t taken a beating before with cavalry as only a double 1 or a double 6 will result in anything useful for the cavalry. But when they are shaken or disordered that would be a whole different game, the problem is just how to do that.
My other infantry brigade decides not to move and they stand still firing some small shots at the other enemy line infantry.
A great game that could have ended totally different. My army was actually a wound or two from breaking in turns so it could really have ended the other way.
Thanks Tobias, I hope we can have many more games like this.
