Grenzers head for the woods.
The Ogre (for it is he!) leads his troops forward.
Both sides had favoured their right flanks.
The Guard leaving their emperor by himself.
'Gun Hill' - the anchor of the Austrian right.
This all looked quite positive.
Although the Frenchies seemed to be rather active on our left.
While our chaps were deployed in proper lined, the garlic munchers
clearly favoured the new-fangled column. It'll never catch on.
The (mostly Hungarian) troops on our left soon took a battering.
Our right easily repelled a French assault - including cuirassiers and Guards!
Endgame - a desperate attack by a battered single stand infantry unit (top left) managed heroically to overcome a similarly weak enemy unit and clinched a famous victory!
Martin's dice rolling was very unlucky and did lead to a most uncharacteristic stream of profanity.
It was very funny.
So, what was it like as a game? Well OK and rather fun and with a few nice mechanisms but frankly I'd rather stick with Command & Colours.
Incidentally, the title was the headline from the following day's Wiener Zeitung. Other headlines from this day were as follows:
"Heroic Hungarians harass horrid Hugenots" - Magyar Nemzet
"It's all over on this flank..." - Tribune de Geneve
"Nous a été volé" - Le Monde
