Our first game at Fall-In 2018 pitted a recklessly aggressive Vandamme against a competent but unlucky Hiller while Lannes and Hohenlohe slugged it out to the north.

Pajol's series of absurdly lucky attacks against the Austrian Avant Garde drove a mile wide gap between the 3rd Hussars providing his flank guard, and Radetzky's infantry division. With his position turned, Hiller found himself in a bad place despite the bulk of his men remaining fresh.

Meanwhile, Hohenlohe had committed Lindeneau's Grenadier Division against Morand's infantry on an open plain, while Ulm's infantry demonstrated against Lannes's 2nd Division. Morand's infantry were beat up, but held. The Austrian grenadiers gave as well as they got, but Lannes had brought up Saint Sulpice's cuirassier division and the exhausted grenadiers weren't going to hold against the fresh heavies.

With that the Austrians withdrew, a bloody nose only, but a loss all the same.
