Robbie wanted to be French (Soubise) and as I hadn't played Prussians for quite some time in a major battle I got to be Fred. Dave and John diced and John joined me as von Seydlitz while Dave took the role of von Saxe-Hildberghaussen.
The Allied army were strung out on column of march in an attempt to catch the Prussians by surprise in the flank. The latter were not in the least surprised and rapidly redeployed to counter the Allied attack. An account of the battle can be found here.
I adapted the scenario in Charles S. Grant's Wargaming in History for the game. We also fought down the length of my table.
1st Column: GM Ludwig Freiherr von Brettlach (7) Aggressive
The Prussians were still almost all very good troops at this stage of the war so benefited from this by the application of few appropriate characteristics from the rules. The Austrian cavalry were pretty good, the French troops were just average and the Reichsarmee units were pretty awful, or worse! For fun I gave some of the commanders personal traits out of the rulebook, which in some cases was to prove very frustrating, mainly for the Allies. As usual we used Black Powder with the LAoK supplement together with some minor house rules and appropriate amendments for the game. So without further ado, here is the account of the game.
