Following on heals of the Russian victory in the Bulgnack River I thought to fight out another battle in the Crimean. This time I would have my French have a go against the Russian masses. The scenario would be a French brigade in a delaying action against a Russian Brigade. The French were outnumbered and had to hold the position as long as possible to delay the Russians.


The French were deployed with the 3rd Zouave regiment, 6th line and a battery would hold a stone wall to delay the Russians. When forced back they would join the 50th line on a small ridge for a final stand. The 1st Chasseurs d'Afrique held the left flank. Please note each French regiment was of Two battalions each.


The Russians would attack in the same manner as the last game. After all it worked so well! The 32nd Kazan Jaeger Regiment on the right and 31st Ouglitch Jaeger Regiment on the left each of four battalions and with a attached battery would sweep forward and drive all before them. The Cavalry would sweep the right flank clear and outrank the French position.

An interesting post. Looks like a solid scenario with good re-play value.
