Hi Guys
I've posted another AAR on my Blog.
This time it's a FoG:N game:

The idea is as follows:
It's 1814, and even though the Bavarians and Wurttembergers have defected to the Allies, Napoleon has managed to withdraw from the Battle of Leipzig in good shape. The Allies have brought across from the Low Countries a British Corp to aid their new found allies, (the Bavarians and Wurttembergers). A mixed force of these 'Germans' are now defending the strategically important town of Lambsnag on Bunn. Marshal Victor has been directed by the Emperor to capture the town and the vital bridges and road intersections. Sir General Thomas Graham is commanding the the British Army (of Corps size) and he is hurrying to the aid of the newly raised Bavarian and Wurttembeg units.
The Emperor had intelligence that the town is defended by the recently defecting Bavarians, and suspected that even though they had fought hard against him at Hanau that here (without any Austrians to intimidate them) they might surrender the town.
The battlefield was dominated by the river Bunn running across it. On the eastern side of the river was the town of Lambsnag. A long line of hills ran the length of the eastern side of the Bunn. Further east and behind the hill line lay a small stream; the Dinneroll which ran between the hill line and the Kornchip Heights.

You can get all the info on the scenario and a turn by turn account of how the battle played at my blog.

I have the rules but I dont have any figs yet,but I'm hoping that I can sell some stuff at Cold Wars to get started.I want to do the early stuff,1805 and 1806 and have been eying the Blue Moon figures.Your blog is very inspirational!

I can recommend the BLUE MOON range. Nice figures though incomplete at this stage. The AB Miniatures are very nice for 1805-06 period and it has everything you need.

The Bavarians in the town fought quite well actually. Repelling two or thee assaults.
The Bavarian Guard Grenadier also did well, (even without the 'Guard' rating and only being classed as Drilled / Average). They Routed a LARGE French line unit, (ok they hit them in flank) so not bad. Also, they DID rally from 'Broken'.
The Bavarians just couldn't hold the line long enough. They probably needed some Artillery.
I'd probably give them a large Battery if I played the scenario again.

Impressive stuff Trailape! I keep looking at my AB Prussians but I am not sure my eyesight could stand the strain of going back to 15mm.
Love the naming conventions! LOL

Love the naming conventions!

Why Lambsnag on Bunn?
We had lamb and chicken sausages on bread rolls for lunch on the day of the game. Arnaud also brought some corn-chips.
