20mm Napoleonic action

For last Friday's game we dragged out our 20mm Napoleonic troops. These guys have been tucked up in their boxes for a while and were in need of some fresh air.

A combined Brunswick and Bavarian force were attempting to hold off an army made up of French and Saxons.

 The Bavarians and Brunswickers were arrayed across the path of the advancing French and Saxons.

Saxon and French infantry prepare for battle.

 The Bavarian and Brunswick artillery opened fire on their enemies as soon as they were in range trying to reduce their numbers before contact.

Saxons open fire on the Brunswick infantry.

 Soon the two lines of troops met in the centre.
 The Brunswickers tried to shoot it out but with cavalry and infantry charging into them it was not looking good.
 More French and Saxon cavalry lurking on the flanks.
 Even with the help of the Bavarian artillery the attack could not be stopped. The defeated Brunswick infantry fell back past the hedge. Now the Bavarians had to stem the flow. With the cavalry blown the Saxon infantry had to carry on by themselves. The Bavarians held but it was too little too late. With night fall approaching the Brunswick and Bavarian army began to withdraw.
The last line of defence.

    1. Thanks Mark, The rules are a set that Geoff and I designed for our 20mm Napoleonics. We have called them Marshals and Generals. They are still a bit of a work in progress but almost there.
