A Surprise Attack (Parte 2)


The French force comes under fire from the Allied gun as they move forward to attack.


The French Chasseurs open a lively fire against the gun crew .


Major Shandy organises the defence .


The 18th open fire on the French Hussars , as the French Chasseurs take cover behind the earthworks .


The French Hussars try to charge but suffer heavy casualties and rout from the melee. (lesson learnt - don't charge formed infantry frontally !)


The Chasseurs drive off the gunners !.


And then move forward to capture the gun !


They capture it ! , but the 18th charge them ! ( colour problems on this photo - due to sunshine streaming through the window !).


The Saxon LiebGrenadierGarde deploy ready to attack in support .


The infantry forces exchange volleys , and the French deployment becomes somewhat jumbled as the cavalry seeks to move around the flank .



The Irish drive off the Chasseurs and recapture the gun !.


Then reinforcements start to arrive ! . Too be continued .....

  1. Never charge infantry that has not used its first fire bonus. Wait until you have whittled a few of them down and then charge with your cuirassiers. Armored cavalry are hard to kill with musketry because they Save on anything but a One or a Two.
