It started as a game using Black Powder but quickly degenerated into more of a chatting match. After Jack had his second glass of Shiraz and a bacon sandwich and we discussed which of us was going to get to the pearly gates first this just turned into a photo shoot opportunity. So lots of pictures not much text but we enjoyed ourselves which was all that mattered.
On the Prussian left flank is a brigade of light and heavy cavalry consisting of Hussars, Uhlans and Cuirassiers
The next to them a brigade of Allied troops from Oldenburg, Mecklenburg, Lippe and Saxe Coburg
The centre is made up of Prussian infantry supported by artillery
On the right is another allied brigade of troops from Brunswick, Bremen and Waldeck
On the extreme right is another Brigade of cavalry consisting of 2 regiments of Prussian Dragoons and Dragoons from Mecklenburg and Oldenburg.
Supported by Wurtettemburgers and Bavarians in the centre and the Austrians on the left flank.
The Mecklenburgh Hussars charge the Austrian artillery. Needless to say they are driven away.
The same is true for the first regiment of dragoons who are charging up hill into the Austrian Jagers.
A lot of head scratching about what to do next. Withdraw the remaining cavalry or plough on! This is of course Jack and retiring isn't part of his vocabulary so they charge on!
The Prussian artillery enjoy some success routing an Austrian regiment
Jack celebrates this brief cavalry victories.
In the centre the Bavarians close on their Prussian enemy.
The second glass of Shiraz slows the thought process!
The Bavarians quickly try to counter the Prussian firing line.
Another Prussian Hussar Regiment is put to flight.
At this point and with 2 glasses of Shiraz and a bacon sandwich having an effect we decided to call it a day.
