Only I could lose Jena as the French

Looks fantastic, well done!

Very nice.

And Seneca there is no dishonour in losing Jena as the French! The Prussian rank and file at battalion and squadron level were a tough, determined force in 1806. At both Jena & Auerstadt, against the French at their zenith, the Prussian rank and file manoeuvred into a disastrous set of situations by inept commanders nevertheless put up one hell of a fight over many hours. They were crushed and routed but not quickly and they inflicted heavy casualties on the best French army Napoleon ever led.

No dishonour to be defeated by them. Very much depends on the rules you are using. Rules without mechanisms to simulate the tremendous differences at command level and the differences in tactical doctrines and drill should quite rightly see a strong chance for the Prussians to win.

I agree with nsolomon99. And to that end, just what set of rules were being used?

A good blog after action report with pictures might be something to look at for the new year.

1806 Prussians also had a high % of Grenadiers and Hv. Cavalry which almost always give a good fight. As mentioned, the Prussians were out general ed.
