Our second ESR Napoleonics game at Fall-In 2018 had Hiller's Korps facing off against Lannes, while Hohenlohe took on Vandamme. In both cases the Austrians were aggressive in their initial moves, so much so that the 3rd Hussars decided to take on a French cuirassier division. Despite how terrible that sounds, the decision was made under nearly optimal circumstances and both Formations effectively neutralized the other for the rest of the game. Punching above their weight like this did not set the tone for the rest of the battle unfortunately…

Very nice looking game. Would be even better if there were some captions telling us what we are looking at.

Very nice looking game. Would be even better if there were some captions telling us what we are looking at.

Unfortunately the gallery we are currently using doesn't provide flexible options for captioning each image. We are looking at solutions. In the mean time we try to offer a substantial narrative in our AARs so that you can read the over-arching account and see it play out in the photographs.
