This is a fictional battle in my Napoleonic campaign. A Prussian Brigade on its way to reinforce Blucher is intercepted by a much larger French Corps. The Prussians fight a desperate battle for survival. 6mm figs by Baccus. General de Brigade rules used with some mods. An AAR of the battle and details of the campaign are on my blog.

Really well done AAR. I like the OOB and map overview and the plethora of photos. Nice!

Many thanks chaps for the kind comments.

Desert Fox….. bases are 15mm x 15mm for inf, 20mm x 15mm for cav and 15mm x 20mm for arty. Mounted on artist card and used Baccus basing materials for the scenic part.

Terrain boards are from a now defunct terrain manufacturer (Purbeck Terrain). Roads, hills incl cliff sides scratch built. Trees from China. Buildings in village by Timecast and 2 cottages from Total Battle Miniatures.

Very Nice AAR and collection

Did the issues with the French order falters and Prussian veteran line falters due to a lower grade trrops of landwehr nearby routing/falling back, make sense to you as to the higher or lower level of play with regards to these rule system?

I see many of the units are 6 fig on 5 stands.
They look stellar En mass!
Just wondering the 5 stands per unit, especially with the french [where typically see collections with 6 ( as in 6 co)]?

Thanks marshalGreg. Some of the morale failures were due to routing/dispersing troops close by but most were due to casualties from shooting or as a result of charges. A poor grade unit such as conscript Landwehr routing near a Veteran unit will still generate a morale check for the latter. The Veteran unit will of course have a better chance of passing it. Hope that answers the first part of your Q.

The rule system has a figure ration of 1:20 therefore the size of my units represent formations accordingly. Some units have suffered attrition during the campaign so are smaller. So yes, 6 figs per stand but some units in this battle have as few as 3 bases with the largest 7 bases. I prefer it this way rather than generic unit sizes.
