Our host, Elliott, having put on a scenario last autumn that was very loosely based on Wartenburg, decided it might be interesting to do it again, with a much more historically based order of battle and terrain layout. This resulted in a much different type of game than the Gentlemen Wargamers are accustomed to (less maneuver, more head-to-head), but very enjoyable nonetheless.

This time, the Prussians under von Yorck (44 battalions, 24 squadrons, 6 batteries) must fight their way out of their Elbe bridgehead into the very teeth of Morand's reinforced division (24 battalions, 8 squadrons, 4 batteries). It turned out to be a much harder slog than anticipated.

Very cool. This is one of the battles I would like to try out. Now I just need all that Italian Line.

Agreed – great photos! Especially love that long column of infantry and guns marching to the front

Very nice. Which set of rules did you use. Napoleonic Command or ESR?

Thanks, Dale.

This one was done with NapCom II. The scenario is a little on the smallish end for ESR (roughly 2 division-sized formations versus about 4) but a comfortable size for NapCom.

Very nice. Once I realised I had to click on one picture at a time to get captions, I enjoyed it much more. Thanks for sharing – looks an interesting scenario. The cake also looked nice.

Nice Looking game but, I really enjoyed seeing the Pint, food and desert. I wish our group did that :)
