I thought it would interesting to do the Plancenoit scenario but with 1870 era armies. So I put together a scenario loosely based on the "General de Brigade" scenario.

So I put on a playtest of the scenario for my local club. I didn't tell anyone what the actual scenario was, just to see if they could figure it out.

In designing this scenario I had to take into account different unit types and 50+ years of weapon technology into consideration. The playtest reveled That I need to work on the OBs and to allow more time to play.

We will be doing this again sometime this year. Here is the flicker link.

There are two pages of photos. So be sure to click 2 at the bottom. Rules are "The Died For Glory" figs are 15mm. Mostly OG but a few other brands. The units are infantry battalions. Three battalions makes a regiment.

I didn't mean to post this on the 18th Century Scenarios board. I cannot just delete from that board without deleting it everywhere else. Something the editor needs to add to the next version of TMP.

Looks like things were just getting started. The first Prussian division took a lot of casualties just getting to the village. Good looking game, too bad there was not enough time to play it out.

The Prussians had at start a Line brigade and a Landwehr brigade. The Landwehr brigade fell back the first time they took a casualty. They rallied and was used mainly for fire support.

However on the other flank the Landwehr did a good job and took the stables from a Chasseur battalion. Then they with stood a furious counter attack by a French Line Battalion.

I was very disappointed we could not play it to a conclusion. The problem was that we just didn't have enough players. But it was a playtest and I learned a few things from it. We will do it again hopefully with a few more players. It was a lot of fun.

I like taking battles and transpose them to a different era.
Looks like a nice game.

Great idea! Nice pictures also.

I love the idea, having myself played Gettysburg 1777, Monmouth 1864, and a few others. One great thing is you can do it a couple of times, just by changing which side is who. Use to give a Victory point to the first player to figure on what battle it was.

Love the look of your OldGlory15s! I've got a few hundred French and Prussians painted up as well. The mix of poses always adds a lot to the appearance of these figures on the table.

Looks like a great game.
